This flora is the culmination of almost 20 years of fieldwork and in-depth research of historical records by the author and draws on over 50 years of field recording by local botanists. It contains more than 1500 species accounts, which include details of each species' first record, status and distribution within the vice-county. More than 660 maps graphically illustrate distribution patterns for native and frequently encountered alien species. Introductory chapters provide background information about the local geology, soils, climate, landscape and changing environment, and also about the history of botanical recording in the area. Further chapters analyse the distribution of species, patterns of floristic changes and discuss the reasons for such changes. The book concludes by considering conservation issues and what can be done to help preserve plants and habitats. To further inspire the reader's interest, 24 pages of colour photographs show a selection of Renfrewshire landscapes, botanical hotspots and local notable species.
This comprehensive Flora has been compiled by the Sussex Botanical Recording Society to update, expand and revise the Sussex Plant Atlas published in 1980 and is the first major account of the county's flora since Wolley-Dod's work of 1937.
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.
