Introducing Ptyxis Ecology

John and I are both professional ecologists and botanists but we started out as amateurs who got obsessed about learning to identify plants. Our idea of a good time on a Friday night is keying out a moss!! Now our hobby is also our job.

We set up PTYXIS, an ecological consultancy, because we realised that our experience was valuable - and in demand - as it takes many years and lots of passion to become a competent botanist. We specialise in botanical and habitat survey work in Northumberland, Cumbria, Durham, Yorkshire and the Scottish borders. We will even travel to far flung places like Shetland and the Isles of Scilly if interesting NVC work is on offer!
