Member and MPG guide Goffredo Filibeck is lead author of a new guide to the plants of Abruzzo “Guida al Paesaggio Vegetale del Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo Lazio e Molise”. Laura Cancellieri, who was co-leader on MPG’s tours in the Maremma in spring 2019 and 2022, is a co-author. Photo captions include scientific names of plants. The book can be ordered here or here. Those who understand Italian can watch a 1hr 30m video in which Goffredo starts to speak 11 minutes in.  The book is published and sold by the Abruzzo National Park and all income goes to the Park for supporting its environmental conservation activities. Goffredo’s photo shows Apennine endemic Cymbalaria pallida on Monte Meta, where it lives on screes.
