  • All help is welcome; I started the research for this stub last week, but only today I finish the work :) - Al Lemos (talk) 17:46, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

More of his life and work in the two sources used in the Finnish page (fi:William Richardson Linton ) : Members of the Moss Exchange Club (1896-1923) and his original book in the archive org. --Tappinen (talk) 06:12, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

    • A full biography of W R Linton is in course of preparation, and will appear sometime in late 2013 or 2014 when we revise and republish a completely new Flora of Derbyshire - the third in the series.Parkywiki (talk) 16:12, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
It's nice to hear that :) - Al Lemos (talk) 18:03, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Me too Nick, Im writing a piece for Museum Practise and mentioning you who allowed QRpedia to be played with. Johannesburg is installing QRpedia - I went to see the plaques made on Friday. Brilliant to hear that Flora of Derbyshire is coming out .... as a book? Victuallers (talk) 20:57, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it'll be in printed form, Roger. My co-author Dr Willmot has researched and written something like 12,000 words on Derbyshire's past botanists. So there should be some good resources coming out on the likes of WRLinton, WH Painter, AR Clapham and so forth. I'd like to create a new Wiki page on The Flora of Derbyshire itself, covering all three past floras, and possibly mentioning the forthcoming fourth version of the FoD. But after the unseemly haste at which some people tried to delete the new page on W Painter I created, I think I'll wait until I have more time to ensure it is complete! I've got 848,000 Derbyshire plant records to get properly mapped first. Great to hear of your piece for Museum Practice. Glad you're getting around a fair bit and that QRpedia is going strong.
