Flora of Staffordshire

The previous Flora of vice county 39 was by Eric Edees, published in 1972. A new recording project began in 1998 to collect data, on a tetrad basis, to cover the period 1995-2008. Also to be incorporated was a comparison with Edees’ results and a summary of significant finds during the period 1973-1994. Many botanists took part and it was published in December, 2011. This volume included records of the less common species during 2009, 2010 and the first half of 2011. It is planned to produce annual updates on this website.
