A travelogue presentation about the plants found in mountainous regions of Central Chile, based on an Alpine Garden Society tour there in January 2017. Many of these are high-alpines from volcanic screes, and Chile is still a centre of vulcanic and seismic activity. However, because of its latitude, plants at comparatively high elevations may enjoy more temperate conditions.Caroline Jackson-Houlston is a recently retired lecturer in English Literature from Oxford Brookes University but has a life-long interest in botany and has led several botanical trips to the Balkans.
