Berkshire, v.c. 22


The Flora of Berkshire and South Oxfordshire (vc. 22)

The plan is to re-survey the flora of Berkshire for Date Class 5 (post-2010), beginning on 1 January 2012 and continuing for the next 5 years or so.

We shall start by revisiting all of the sites listed for the species in the Rare Plants Register for vc. 22. You can download the Rare Plant Register here (pdf 1.5 MB).

Instead of square bashing (e.g. tetrads or monads), we shall record habitats within sites separately. The computer can then produce summaries and maps at any scale we chose. These detailed records are much more useful for planning and conservation, and lend themselves much more readily to detecting changes in the flora in years to come.

There will be training days (Sundays, typically) at different locations in most summer months, and beginners are encouraged to attend.

If you are interested in contributing to the project, please get in touch with Mick Crawley.
