A Checklist of the Worcestershire Flora

A check list was written in 2001 by John Day, the Botanical Society of the British Isles (BSBI) recorder for Worcestershire VC37, using his database containing approximately 450,000 records of native and introduced plants recorded post 1970. The list is basically a table indicating for each species Status, Scientific Name, Common Name and Frequency. The list up-dates that produced by John Day many years ago. As it is a useful for various purposes it was then prepared by Andrew Fraser for printing by Worcestershire County Council. Much more information will be available when the Worcestershire Flora is published in a few years (see Roger Maskew's note below), meanwhile it is a useful interim publication.

The Check List can be purchased from Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Lower Smite Farm, Smite Hill, Hindlip, Worcester, WR3 8SZ:
Price 7 if collected (during office hours). If you wish to use mail order please add 2 to cover postage and packing.

Note from Roger Maskew

In the latest Newsletter for the Worcestershire Biodiversity Partnership Action for Wildlife, Issue 7, it is stated: A checklist of Worcester shire Flora has been produced by the Worcestershire Flora Project. I wish to correct this statement.

The checklist has been published by the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, and at no time has the Flora Project been directly involved in the production of this list.

Since 1987 the Flora Project has been independently conducting a detailed survey of the county, and it is our intention to publish the results in a full-scale county flora within the next few years.
