Warwickshire in 100 Objects: Computer Mapped Flora of Warwickshire
Dorothy Cadbury (1892-1987) was a botanist and director of the Cadbury’s confectionery company. On her retirement she researched and published the ground-breaking Computer-Mapped Flora of Warwickshire, an early computerised census of county botanical biodiversity. This was the first survey and book of its kind – a ground-breaking contribution to British botany and ecology.
Several copies are held within the Warwickshire Museum collection, together with many of Dorothy Cadbury’s herbarium sheets and records.
