About this book

This new work – by the Trust's Head of Conservation Michael Jeeves – is the first complete published listing of those flowering plants, ferns, clubmosses and horsetails recorded growing wild in the combined counties of Leicestershire and Rutland (Vice-County 55) since 1933. It includes the records of 1762 plants, including microspecies, hybrids and subspecies, available at 31st December 2010.

The Flora of Leicestershire and Rutland contains an introduction addressing issues such as the conservation of the flora, a bibliography, gazetteer and index of English names. The main text consists of an alphabetical list of plants, with concise details of status, habitat and frequency. Rare Plant Register species are highlighted with more detail on localities where they occur and those plants considered to be indicators of good habitat (axiophytes) are also noted.
