Species - Flora and Checklist
A major new Flora of Derbyshire was published in 2015 (price 38.50). Authored by Alan Willmot and Nick Moyes, it gives a detailed account of all 1,919 vascular plants ever known to have grown in the wild in Derbyshire. Each species has an individual account, describing its ecology, distribution and status in the county. The majority of species are also mapped in colour. Chapter 9 contains a new revision of the county Red Data List for Derbyshire.  For further details see here.

 


A 'Checklist of the Plants of Derbyshire' was originally published in 2002, and updated in 2007. It provided a useful alphabetical list of all the vascular plants ever recorded in Derbyshire, and their statuses. Despite now being superseded by the new 'Flora of Derbyshire', published in 2015 (see below), the documents can still be downloaded from Derby City Council's website here.
