British Red Data Books: 1. Vascular plants (3rd edition) 1999


This volume systematically documents the likelihood of extinction of a substantial part of the British flora. The main bulk of the volume comprises accounts of nationally threatened species, ranging from those that are endemic to Britain to those that are geographically widespread and common on a worldwide scale. There are a few endemic taxa that are not nationally rare but whose international importance is recognised by their inclusion in this volume.

This resource has been produced from a scan of an original document. You may therefore experience fluctuations in quality and large file sizes. Due to the file size of the volume, it is divided into the following parts/chapters:

  • Part 1: Prelims and Chapters 1 to 5
  • Part 2: Chapter 6 (Accounts of species)
  • Part 3: Chapter 7 and Appendices

Please note that this is the third edition of this Red Data Book, published in 1999. More recent information may therefore be available. To find more up-to-date information on the conservation status of species, please visit our conservation designations webpage.
