I’m afraid I haven’t got any recommendations to make but I thought I’d just put my head round the door and say hello.
This isn’t a recommendation but did anyone read Austin Freeman’s Dr._Thorndyke (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Thorndyke) stories when they were younger? My Dad was a keen Sherlock Holmes fan and I suspect Dr T. was a Sherlock rip-off. I remember in one story, following a post-mortem, Dr T spotted that the type of duckweed found in the victim’s lungs was different from that present in the canal where the body was found! “Elementary, my dear Watson-equivalent”. As a result, I probably know more than any other NWTN member about the duckweeds that occur in the UK. ;-0
