At 7.30 am tomorrow, 2nd July, Ian will be on BBC Three Counties Radio, talking about Giant Hogweed Heracleum mantegazzianum: how much of a threat does it pose to the public? By coincidence, today I was copy-editing a paper on this very subject for publication in the December issue of New Journal of Botany, so do look out for that. If you are not able to tune in at 7.30 tomorrow morning, the programme will be available here on Listen Again.

Even though Ian is in such demand from the media, he is still managing to get out in the field. Last week, he was in East Anglia looking at orchids (he is BSBI's co-referee for all orchids apart from Epipactis) and he photographed this stunning albino Dactylorhiza praetermissa.
