A short Flora of Berwickshire
by Michael Braithwaite
This hardback book to be published privately in October 2014 will be of 432 pages liberally illustrated in full colour with photographs and distribution maps. English names for the wildflowers are shown alongside the Latin names throughout the book. The page size is 18 x 24.5 cm to allow the book to be handled comfortably.
The main sections are (i) an illustrated botanical tour of Berwickshire, (ii) full species accounts for a selection of 415 species, including 1 x 1 km distribution maps in a variety of formats showing the historical records as well as recent records and (iii) a full checklist for 1,573 species and other taxa with status, habitat and 1 km frequency.
Further sections cover the history of botanical recording in the county, various aspects of recent change in the flora and supplementary analysis. As Berwick upon Tweed does not fall in Berwickshire its flora is discussed in a separate section.
The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland has arranged grant assistance enabling the cover price for this limited edition book to be set at £20 plus £5 post and packing.
