Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Spartina anglica - Common Cord-grass

Common Cord-grass has been recorded in tidal mud-flats of many estuaries with the exceptions of the Fal and the Gannel. It is particularly abundant in the lower reaches of the Tamar (SX45), but is absent from the Isles of Scilly. Spartina x townsendii has yet to be found in Cornwall.
