This year apparently 1517 of you visited my blog, viewing 3663 posts between you – many more than on 2014. You mainly live in the UK, US and India but some of you come from one of 79 other countries! You liked reading about parasitic plants, plants in the Himalayas and our fieldwork in Alnwick. I hope some of you might be interested in coming to the Indian Himalayas with us this summer to look at the geology and ecology of this amazing area – see http://www.indusexperiences.co.uk/special-interest/earthsciences/rocks-routs-shoots-field-trip-2016 for details of next year’s trip. I’ll be blogging about that and about the reconnaissance we’ll be doing for a trip to the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand in 2017.
