What an honor it is for the Conservation Center to bring (virtually) to you, one of the world’s foremost experts on carnivorous plants! Stewart McPherson graduated in geography at the University of Durham in England, studied briefly at the University of Tübingen in Germany, and Yale University. In 2006 he founded Redfern Natural History Productions in Poole, Dorset to conduct natural history research, publishing, filming and eco-tours.
McPherson is the author of around 20 volumes published by his own company and concerned with natural history, largely focusing on carnivorous plants. He has co-discovered a number of species (including the much publicized Nepenthes attenboroughii) and has formally described around 35 carnivorous plant taxa.
He is a member of the IUCN SSC Carnivorous Plant Specialist Group. He documented each species in full detail in its natural habitat, taking seven years with many expeditions in the tropics of Southeast Asia, Africa and South America. Over time, he has transitioned into TV presenter and natural history writer.
Stewart founded “Ark of Life” http://arkoflife.net/ to conserve species on the brink of extinction, initially carnivorous plant groups. Just look at how prolific this man is! Does he even sleep? https://www.redfernnaturalhistory.com/
