BSBI Atlas 2020 Fund Appeal:   SURVEY - RECORD - ANALYSE:   Help us map our wild plants in a changing world

Plant Atlas 2020

Since 2000 we have all, as contributors to our recording network, been engaged in fieldwork to provide the data necessary for the third comprehensive Atlas of the British and Irish flora, building on our 1962 and 2002 Atlases. On 8th March 2023, Plant Atlas 2020 was officially launched as a physical book and online resource.

All this work was only possible through the support of BSBI Members, donors, supporters and partners. We are incredibly grateful to all that have supported this mammoth undertaking and who continue to support our necessary on-going work.
