About this book

Swithland Wood is one of Leicestershire's most popular public open spaces. This study catalogues the vascular and cryptogamic flora and presents detailed quantitative studies of the field, shrub and canopy layers, related to topographical and historical factors. The book draws attention to the remarkable population of the small-leaved lime tree Tilia cordata, and attempts to explain its curious behaviour in this ancient, yet secondary, woodland.
