Description
About the book

Willmot & Moyes' The Flora of Derbyshire is the first Flora for this botanically-rich county since 1969. Printed in full colour throughout, it covers all wild flowers, trees, conifers and ferns recorded in Derbyshire over the last 400 years. Based on ¾ million plant records, it is the culmination of nearly 20 years of research and fieldwork by the authors and their helpers.


Its 1,919 species accounts describe the status, habitats and distribution of all Derbyshire's wild plants. Colour maps for over 1,100 species are included, with modern and historic records plotted at tetrad level (2km x 2km) in a clear unambiguous manner that few other atlases achieve. Different map backgrounds are used to assist understanding of species distribution, and include roads and urban areas, waterways, landscape character, geology and relief.


Introductory chapters describe the landscapes and vegetation of the county, the history of Derbyshire field botany and the story of local plant conservation. One chapter, entitled "Where to See Plants in Derbyshire", is set to become an important resource for local and visiting plant lovers as it describes over 50 easily accessible and botanically-rich sites to visit, spread right across the county.


This is the first county Flora to be published which includes the brand new 2014 designations of "England Red List Species". All of Derbyshire's own Red Data List plants are tabulated in a separate chapter, with others covering the very latest species discoveries, past published errors, plus a list of indicator species for each of Derbyshire's major plant habitats.
