Rare Plant Register
The group’s initial priority for recording is the preparation of an up-to-date Kent rare plants register. The current list of plants (updated to 2012) to be covered by the register may be downloaded below.
>> RPR list, v. 6
>> RPR list, v. 6 with English names
The introduction to the register is available here.
>> RPR introduction (pdf 563KB)
The accounts of individual plants are to be issued as a series of drafts (see below), for feedback. Up-to-date information is needed about whether plants are still at old sites; whether numbers are increasing /decreasing; and what threats there may be.
Comments on how the drafts can be improved may be sent to Geoffrey Kitchener.
Drafts issued so far:
>> RPR species accounts A (Dec 2012)
>> RPR species accounts B (Dec 2012)
>> RPR species accounts Ca (Feb 2013)
>> RPR species accounts Ce-Cy (Feb 2013)
Plants which have been present in the county and would have qualified for the register, but which are no longer expected to be found, are listed below.
