Mapping England’s Important Arable Plants (Various sites, England)
Arable plants are the fastest declining group of plants in England. This is caused by a change to more intensive farming practices.
To help guide conservation measures we have been working with Natural England to map the distribution of threatened arable plants and Important Arable Plant Areas across National Character Areas in England.

This project was completed with the help of the Botanical Society for Britain and Ireland through the use of their distribution database and Natural England. It has been generously supported by Natural England’s Species Recovery Programme Fund.
