The principal group studying Devon's flora is the Devonshire Association's Botany Section. Founded over 100 years ago, the Section organises around a dozen field meetings a year throughout the county. You can find a brief summary of these meetings on the Devonshire Association's website, or for the full programme contact the secretary, Tim Purches.
