LDH_on_Parker_Ridge.jpgWhat is an alpine plant? - considers the characteristics of alpine environments and the plants that live in them, illustrated by photos that Lawrence has taken on five continents.

Lawrence is an academic plant biologist at the University of Calgary with particular interest in pollination and reproductive ecology. He has been fortunate to pursue this interest on five continents, and never misses the opportunity to go plant hunting with camera in hand.  He is also a chastened rock gardener, learning the hard way not to start too big.
