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.

Hordeum secalinum - Meadow Barley

Meadow Barley has always been rare and found in coastal localities. The only recent record was from a meadow at Pendavey, near Wadebridge, in 1991 (SX07A, M.Atkinson). It was recorded near here in 1954 at Amble Marshes (SW97X, R.W.David).
