Michael Heathcoat Amory, The Oaks of Chevithorne Barton, Adelphi Publishers, London. (2009)

The complier of the website is proud to have been associated with the development of this exciting new book.  It is far more than just the story of the creation of one of the most notable collections of oaks in the world.  Beautifully and profusely illustrated with photographs by James MacEwen, the botanical text, featuring many descriptions of taxa not readily found elsewhere, was written by Allen Coombes.  The foreword has been contributed by Lord Heseltine: other major contributors include Richard Jensen who has given an up-to-date and revealing  review of the evolutionary history and taxonomy of the genus.

With descriptions and illustrations of around 200 oaks in this UK National Collection®, this is a "must have" for anyone with even a passing interest in oaks.  The work was published in the UK 9th July, 2009 with a cover price of £25.00.
