County Recorders

John and Monika Walton

46 Hill Top, Baddesley Ensor, Atherstone, Warwickshire, CV9 2BQ

Warwickshire Flora Group

Our plans are to establish systems for recording throughout the county, to join in this year’s BSBI Threatened Plants Project and to encourage local botanists to start networking again through a series of Field Meetings which have been arranged for this Summer.

Future plans include the preparation of an up-to-date Rare Plant Register. An earlier Rare Plant Register, produced in 2002 by Pam Copson (a previous BSBI Recorder) can still be viewed on a now somewhat outdated Warwickshire Plants website that is still of interest.

2009 saw the publication of Warwickshire’s Wildflowers by Steven J. Falk from Warwickshire Museum. This is the first comprehensive account of the county’s native and naturalized plants for 30 years. The first half of the book covers the history of plant recording in the county and gives detailed information on habitats, the second half is a checklist that gives the status of nearly 1800 plants that have been seen within the vice-county. The book is available from booksellers and from Warwick Museum, Market Place, Warwick, CV34 4SA. Full details can be found by clicking on the link.
