Paul Green

Paul Green has always been keen on all aspects of natural history, especially plants. He worked part-time as a botanical leader for Greentours Natural History Holidays from 2004 – 2013, leading trips in Europe, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Morocco & Turkey. He also worked as the BSBI Welsh Officer for the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland (BSBI) from 2012 – 2015 and surveyed rare plants all over Wales.

Paul has been a member of the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland for 30 years. He took an active role in the BSBI Monitoring Scheme in 1987/88 in Somerset, Waterford and Galway and was appointed BSBI Vice-county recorder for Somerset in 1992. The Atlas Flora of Somerset (published with his brother in 1997) is a highly regarded county flora that won the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland (BSBI) and Wildflower Society President’s prize for the best botanical work published that year. In the 1990s Paul was invited to Ireland to assist with the BSBI New Atlas project. He became the Vice County-recorder for both Co. Waterford and Co. Wexford and moved to Co. Wexford in 2006.

In 2008, he published the Flora of County Waterford which was funded by the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin. In the same year, the National Biodiversity Data Centre, Waterford, published his plant dataset through a GIS web version of the Flora of County Waterford.  This was the first web flora for a county published in Ireland or Britain. Paul was subsequently awarded the Distinguished Recorder Award in 2009 by the National Biodiversity Data Centre which is an annual award to individuals or organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to the recording of Ireland’s biodiversity. He is currently working on a Flora of Co. Wexford.
