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.

Bromopsis erecta - Upright Brome

Upright Brome is restricted to the dune grasslands of the north coast and rare even there. It has been recorded on Kennack Sands (SW71I) and at Bude (SS20D), but is now known only at Gwithian Towans (SW54V), Godrevy (SW54W), Gear Sands (SW75S) and Porth Joke (SW76Q).
