This register of the rare, scarce and threatened vascular plants of Cumbria is a companion book to the Flora of Cumbria and provides more precise and up to date details of individual species than the Flora. The source of much of the information in the Register is drawn from the Flora of Cumbria database along with subsequent records and species index cards, corrected and updated by local recorders, field workers from other local groups and BSBI surveys. The register is well produced and laid out, with coloured distribution maps for some species and several plates of coloured photographs.
This a paper form of an abridged version of the Register database.
This abridged version is also available in electronic form, viewable on the BSBI website.
Both the Flora and the Register cover the vice counties of Westmorland (v.c. 69) and Cumberland (v.c. 70) together with a single parish of West Lancashire (v.c. 60) and four hectads of North West Yorkshire (v.c.65)
