Oak apples... robin's pin cushions on dog roses... red pimples on sycamore leaves... Looking for plant galls is a field where the amateur naturalist can make a real difference to scientific knowledge. These bizarrely shaped and highly coloured growths on plants are caused by insects and other organisms.

This 12-panel laminated fold-out chart includes colour illustrations for 69 common galls. The accompanying text gives further background information on gall identification and causers.

This chart is part of the FSC's range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.

The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
