50 years of Mapping the British and Irish Flora 1962-2012 Author: Format: Paperback First Published: Published By: Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland ISBN: 9780901158468 Categories: , ,

This booklet was prepared for the 2012 BSBI conference ‘A great leap forward – Biological Recording since the 1962 Atlas of the British Flora’. Illustated in full colour, the booklet provides the background to the genesis of the Atlas, it’s successes and limitations and the initiatives that arose from it in the subsesquent decades. This is covered in 3 sections: mapping the national distribution of plants; studying the flora at finer scales than the original hectad maps; other aids to interpretation of the maps that have developed over time. Each section is complemented by a selection of maps.
It is hoped that the booklet will inspire recorders to plan their future work, and be of interest to not just professional botanists but a wide audience of biologists, conservationists, policy makers and amateurs.
