Description
About the book

The Flora of Lanarkshire by the late Peter Macpherson,is the first comprehensive flora of this Scottish county.
Past President of the BSBI, the author was official plant recorder for Lanarkshire VC 77 for over 35 years. This Flora represents decades of meticulous research and field work and contains historical and current records of plants growing in wild situations across the very diverse county. Extending south to the source of the river Clyde, VC 77 includes upland regions, heaths, rivers, lochs and urban areas including part of the greater Glasgow conurbation.
Over 2,000 taxa, including native and alien species, specific to different habitats are described in addition to detailed analysis of sites of particular botanical interest.
A catalogue of past and present species displays the distribution on dot maps alongside an historical account and habitat description of the individual species. Twenty-four colour plates illustrate a range of botanical sites and notable species.
The introductory chapter details the history of botanical recording in the area and gives an outline of the topography, geology and climate of the region.
The text is interspersed with anecdotes relating to the author's fieldwork, making it a very readable account of his time recording and analysing the diverse and changing flora of Lanarkshire.
