Field of interest

I see you have these plants as your field of interest. Are your observations part of a study and will they be used to inform the scientific body of knowledge about them? I do hope so.

Hello Janet. I have written

Hello Janet. I have written numbers of articles in society journals worldwide and have published an introductory book in DVD form. See:
Currently, I am in the finishing stages of a vastly enlarged edition (359 pages, about 100,000 words, innumerable photos many world firsts) that will probably never be published in book form because of expense. Too many photographs and of course a subject too esoteric to be suitable as a mass media. My thoughts are to donate it to a website that can publish it free to the world.

Such a wonder!

I've really enjoyed reading your link, it has taken me a while! How generous of you to consider donating your book in this way but I hope you can publish it in the science world as well, I'm sure places like Kew would be interested.

I was going to ask if you had considered self-publishing (if you avoid the scams print on demand (POD) has little in the way of up front costs), but I see that you have already done so (the "Australian ant-plants" book).

There is also the alternative of e-publishing, but perhaps the form factor of e-book readers is too unfriendly to the subject.
