Dataset Details - Irish vascular plant data 1999-2009
Covers all vascular plants, including pteridophytes and conifers
Vascular plant records mainly accumulated as sideline during recording of bryophytes, but with some brief excursions specifically aimed at vascular plant recording
Mainly field records, with few notable records backed by herbarium specimens
Most Irish vice-counties, but with many records from Galway, Kerry, etc. and few from most vice-counties
Experience with field botany in UK since ca 1964 should ensure most records are correct; critical groups are not covered; a few notable records are backed by herbarium specimens or vouchers; a few such as Utricularia identified with microscopic checks
A few records are published as short notes in I.N.J., a few more may yet be published if time allows
Restricted (Data can be viewed on the mapping system but is not available for download)
