The BSBI is for everyone who cares about the wild plants of Britain and Ireland.

Since 1836, we've been promoting the study, understanding and enjoyment of British and Irish botany.

We support all botanists - beginner or expert, amateur or professional - as they identify, record and map what grows where.

Our data and knowledge underpin the conservation of the British and Irish flora.
