Gibbons, Bob


Dr. Bob Gibbons  has been described as ‘one of Britain’s best naturalists’. He has written about 40 books to date, on many aspects of natural history and photography, including several floras, an acclaimed field guide to dragonflies, several field guides to insects, a guide to the National Parks and wild places of Europe, guides to the wildlife sites of France, Greece, and many more. He took most of the photographs for the widely-publicised Flora Britannica project, worked with Plantlife on a book showing British flowers at their best (Flowers at my Feet, HarperCollins)  and wrote regular articles for British Wildlife magazine, and other publications. His recent book on “the most flowery places in the world”, was published as Wildflower Wonders of the World, simultaneously in the UK and USA, and has recently been re-issued in paperback. He has just completed a series of pocket field guides to flowers, trees, insects, and butterflies for Bloomsbury.

 After working for many years in nature conservation, he is now a freelance author, photographer, lecturer, and, until recently, a Visiting Fellow at Southampton University. He has led numerous tours to many European destinations, as well as to more exotic destinations such as the Himalayas, Costa Rica, South Africa, Namibia, Equador, and the Galapagos.  He can be contacted directly for any queries about the tours at 24 Newborough Road, Wimborne, Dorset BH21 1RD,  ( 01202 849142; or
