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.

Rubus fruticosus agg. - Blackberry

The aggregate species for the bramble is one of the most commonly recorded plants. Only on parts of Bodmin Moor does it seem to be absent. The accounts that follow of this largely apomictic group are based on surveys that are ongoing. Our knowledge of Cornish brambles cannot be said to be complete, but it is hoped that some distribution maps might be useful in that they should give some indication of the range of the species in Cornwall.
