Rare Plant Register
A new Rare Plant Register has been completed and is available via the link below.
This new publication now includes dot maps that cover all the known records for each species, showing in some cases the extreme contraction of the range within the vice-county over the past 150 years.
The file is huge: a pdf of 50MB, so it might take some time to download it all.

Northamptonshire Flora Group
The Northamptonshire Flora Group was first formed to facilitate the publication of a new vice-county flora, which was published in 1995. Since then a small group of botanists under the leadership of the late Rob Wilson, who was County Recorder for Northants. until his sad death in 2018, have worked together to record for the Millenium Atlas, the local change project and a much expanded and completely updated Flora which was published in 2013. We are currently recording for Atlas2020 with the intention of covering the whole of the vice-county between 2011 and 2020. You are welcome to join us on any of our outings - please contact Alyson Freeman at [email protected] to find out more.
In addition to the Northamptonshire Flora Group, which covers the whole of the vice-county, there is also the the East Northants and Soke of Peterborough Group which covers the north-east of the vice-county. Meanwhile if anyone requires further information, or wishes to be added to the poll for outings, please contact Alyson Freeman at [email protected].
