About this book

The Discovery of the Native Flora of Britain & Ireland comprises accounts of the first records of 1670 taxa in Britain, Ireland, the Channel Isles and the Isle of Man. For each species, there is the first literature reference, the first evidence and extensive notes. The book also features an introduction, more than 900 references and extensive appendices comprising:

- a relatively critical account of every significant national flora or herbal since 1538;
- a list of the principal periodicals from 1666 to date;
- lists of census catalogues and lists of plants;
- details of county floras with a very good history of discovery;
- books on the history of botany;
- developments in Ireland, Scotland and Wales;
- and on the major herbaria whose contents are known, however broadly.

These are supplemented by a list of the discoverers of each plant, where known, with leads to more sources almost all of these (just about 500 names) and lists of the plants they discovered. The author believes that the sum of these appendices is more comprehensive than anything else available.
