More evidence of great 19th century lady naturalists like Alma. Here is the work of Amelia Griffiths (1768-1858) gifted scholar who corresponded with the foremost algae and seaweed experts of her time. (I LOVE THAT SENTENCE!) Her great companion was Mary Wyatt who kept a pressed plant shop in Torquay. The two ladies co-operated in their collecting and produced two volumes of pressed and named seaweeds found in the neighbourhood of Torbay, called Algae Danmoniensis. Worked into her 80’s.
