California Horticultural Society, our sister organisation, invited members to an online meeting with an illustrated lecture “Armenia: Nature and Climate” by guest speaker Tamar Galstyan (pictured). Tamar has explored the exceptionally diverse flora of her native country and her book A Field Guide to the Plants of Armenia will be published this autumn. The meeting on Monday 19 July was recorded and may be viewed on YouTube. MPG plans to repeat its 2015 field trip to Armenia soon and this will be led by Dr Anna Asatryan of the Armenian Institute of Botany.
