More About Michael Chinery
Michael Chinery is best known for his field guides to insects and other creepy-crawlies, especially those that occur in gardens, and for his numerous books encouraging young people to explore and enjoy the countryside and its wildlife. Insects and wild flowers fascinated him from a very early age and this inevitably led to an interest in plant galls with their intimate mix of plant and animal life. He joined the British Plant Gall Society soon after its formation in 1985, and has been editing the Society's journal, "Cecidology," since 1990.
