Chris gave a very interesting talk about the Silk Road and the differences in the flora exploring the reasons for the plant distribution. This discussion was fascinating as always, in understanding the way plants adapt to their specific location and environment.
The photos of the landscape were inspiring leading many to add new counties to the long list already on the 'bucket lists' of the places to visit. Therefore, their book on the Flora of The Silk Road is highly recommended for both the photographs and the text.
The AGSVG thanks Chris and Basak for interrupting their trip in WA to fly across to talk to our group on Saturday.
