FSC Plant galls identification guide
Oak apples… robin’s pin cushions on dog roses… witch’s brooms on birch trees…
You can find plant galls almost anywhere that plants grow. Galls can be found on the stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds and roots of many different plants, including many very common species. Oaks and willows are particularly rich in galls.
The FSC Plant galls identification ghart features colour illustrations for 69 common galls. The accompanying text gives further background information on gall identification and causers.
The guide was produced in partnership with the British Plant Gall Society.
