2021 County Report for Renfrewshire

Keith Watson

The year has seen a great amount of botanical activity, with over 15000 records made - the highest ever recorded annual total. Records for 900 species were made from 189 monads, and there were 13 organised outings. Further details can be seen in the newsletters on the BSBI Renfrewshire vc76 page.

The pleasing increase in records is due to the efforts of Michael Philip extending his 'Team 77' network into Renfrewshire (and also Dunbartonshire). This has resulted in 36 folk subscribing and over 20 took part in fieldwork this year. The work has also been ably supported by Peter Wiggins, who regularly provides summary dot maps, which enables the targeting of survey work.
