This totally new work by three of the County's foremost botanists, co-ordinated by the Hampshire Flora Committee of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, is the first comprehensive study of the species-rich flora of Hampshire (excluding the Isle of Wight) for over a century. It contains over 1750 species of vascular plants - a 25 per cent increase on Townsend's Flora of Hampshire (1884; revised 1904) which did cover the Isle of Wight - and includes many non-indigenous species, as well as their subspecies, varieties and hybrids. It also includes condensed accounts of the 590 lichen and 459 bryophyte taxa to be found in the county, contributed by Francis Rose with Ken Sandell and Alan Crundwell respectively. The main recording period covers the years 1950 to 1995, but the cut-off date for records on the dot-distribution maps is 1993. However, some records date back to 1930, ensuring continuity with J. F. Rayner's Supplement to Frederick Townsend's Flora which covered the years 1904 to 1929, and there are a number of interesting earlier records of historical significance, some drawn from obscure sources.
