Non-members can read back copies of BSBI News in our Publications Archive here but to get your hands on recent issues - and to hear that lovely thwumping noise as the latest issue drops onto your doormat - you'll need to join the society!
The most recent issue of BSBI News included such delights as:
- The discovery of a population of Greater tongue-orchid Serapias lingua in Essex: a surprising find, as this plant is principally a Mediterranean species.
- A report on what could well be the last population of Yellow Star-of-Bethlehem Gagea lutea in Leicestershire.
- A note about Small Goosegrass Galium murale: is it overlooked?
- Aberrant forms of plantains and giant horsetails.
- News of an "exceptional population" of Shepherd's Cress Teesdalia nudicaulis.
- A note about the impact of climate change on the distribution of Bee Orchid Ophrys apifera.
- A request for volunteers to test a new visual wild flower key (BSBI members are usually at the front of the queue to try out new identification aids!).
