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.

Carex dioica - Dioecious Sedge

This is a sedge of eutrophic, usually calcareous, flushes and mires. There are old records for the species in Davey (1909) and it is mapped, without locality, for SW74 in Jermy, et al . (1982), but there are no recent records.
