|Chapter 1 describes the eleven different Landscape Character Areas in Derbyshire.|
|Most distribution maps show relief and Landscape Character Areas. |
A few, like that for Green Spleenwort, show Derbyshire geology.
Others show urban areas, roads or major waterbodies.
|Three types of map symbols are used to represent records from different date classes.|
|Local common names (like Leadwort) are included, or referred to in the text accounts.|
|This is the page for Jacob's Ladder - recently voted Derbyshire's 'county plant'.|
All known micro-species are covered, like these for Taraxacum (Dandelions).
Many of the Hieracium (Hawkweed) accounts have maps, too.
|Records are mostly plotted at the tetrad level (2km x 2km). |
Sometimes using hectads (10km x 10km symbols) is more informative for older records.
However, all species accounts usually refer to locations at a 1km accuracy.
Printed in full colour, The Flora of Derbyshire contains 180 photos of plants and landscapes.
Many were taken by Derby-based photographer, Peter Smith. Here: Danish Scurvy Grass (C. danica)
