Tucker, J.J. (1983)

Heathland Interest Register (2nd Edn.)

While working on Hartlebury Common, Worcestershire (1980–83) I created the European Heathland Interest Register.

In the days before email developing contacts with the British Ecological Society (BES) was slow. I created the Register, using a logo developed from the three-point leaf configuration of Dorset Heath, Erica ciliaris. The Register listed the names, academic and/or management interests and contact addresses of more than 140 people from nine countries throughout Europe, plus thee members from the USA. Before the days of the internet is was a key source of contacts within the community of heathland workers.
