Flora of Cardiganshire
The most comprehensive source of information on Cardiganshire is Arthur Chater’s Flora, published in 2010. It is a large volume and has sold out, but it is now available in electronic form free to anyone who wants to read it.
Here are some sample pages:-
It is a large file (about 700 MB) so the best way to download it is to join a Dropbox folder. Email us if you would like us to send you a Dropbox invitation.
Alternatively, if you would like to send a USB pen drive and a stamped self addressed envelope, we shall post it back to you. Send it to: BSBI, 34 Gordon Road, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 4NF, UK. It needs to be at least a 1GB drive, and make sure you put enough postage on the envelope to get it back to you.
The corrections already available have been incorporated, otherwise the file is as printed.
Please note that the Flora is still subject to copyright. You may take a copy for your own use but you may not distribute it further in electronic or hard copy, or use the pictures. If you want to quote from the text, please do so in the normal way attributing the source and citing the reference in full, as you should with any document accessed from our web sites. Anyone wishing to use any of the illustrations or who wants permission to do anything more with it should contact the author. Arthur wishes to acknowledge the continuing and invaluable help of Paul Smith, whose expertise and hard work has made this electronic version available.
