The 2013 Autumn Meeting at the Natural History Museum, London completed the capital ring after Edinburgh, Cardiff and Dublin. Council, Publications and Conservation Committee meetings were held on the Friday afternoon and evening in the Natural History Museum. 40 participants (a slightly lower number than at the last London Annual Meeting in 2011) attended the main programme of talks followed by the AGM on the Saturday. They were treated to an exceptionally eclectic range of presentations, including two from overseas speakers.
On Sunday 12 people joined the excursion to Wimbledon Common where over 40 taxa were seen. Though far less varied than Hampstead Heath (Duckett & Pressel, 2009), the Common
still boasts a range of interesting taxa with pride of place going to Pallavicinia lyellii in a long known locality on one of the bogs that also harbours 5 species of Sphagnum.
