Mapping Wales’ Important Arable Plants (Various sites, Wales)
Arable plants are the fastest declining group of plants in Wales. The cause: the demise of mixed farming and introduction of intensive farming practices
To help guide conservation measures we have been working with the Welsh Government and Natural Resources Wales to identify to map the distribution of threatened arable plants and Important Arable Plant Area importance across eight Welsh vice-counties.
- Download a summary report explaining the results of the mapping and recommendations.
- Download a full report containing the method and a detailed analysis of the mapping with recommendations for action.
Each vice-county where this work was undertaken (Anglesey, Caernarfonshire, Cardiganshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Glamorganshire, Monmouthshire and Pembrokeshire) has a separate report providing the detailed distribution maps for threatened arable plants and Important Arable Plant Area status across the vice-county.
This project was completed with the help of the Vice-county Recorders, Botanical Society for Britain and Ireland in Wales, Natural Resources Wales and Welsh Government. It has been generously supported by the Welsh Governments Resilience and Ecosystem Fund 2013-2015.
