The Hurley and North Wyke Story: 60 years of Grassland Research 1949-2009

Editors: Roger Wilkins, Steve Jarvis and Martin Blackwell.

A book marking 60 years of grassland research at Hurley and North Wyke has been collated by staff and ex-staff of these important grassland institutions. The book details the main scientific achievements and key developments in the research, traces changes in organisation, research foci and facilities, but also gives some impressions and insights of life in the research stations.  It finishes with a perspective on the future for research at North Wyke and will contain something of interest for many BGS members.

More information and an electronic copy of the book will be available at

Please contact North Wyke on: 01837 883500 to obtain a free hard copy.
