New Flora of the Isles of Scilly – pre-publication offer ends 31st March 2017

Some 28 miles southwest of the Cornish mainland are the beautiful Isles of Scilly, an archipelago of 150 small, rocky islands. Only five are inhabited and 40 have some higher vegetation. Surrounded by the sea and washed by the Gulf Stream the climate is mild, supporting a unique flora of both native and alien plants. This new account, authored by Rosemary Parslow and Ian Bennallick, updates the last Flora published for the islands, which was written nearly 50 years ago by J.E. Lousley in 1971.

The New Flora covers nearly 1,000 species, both native and introduced, with distribution maps and many photographs. Sections include:

  • the geographical position of the Isles of Scilly
  • early history of botanical recording
  • island habitat maps
  • descriptions of individual islands
  • alien plants
  • plant habitats
  • species accounts and maps

  • bibliography and useful references
