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 sylvatica - Wood-sedge

i> Carex sylvatica is a woodland sedge which requires heavy, clay soils, hence its frequency in woodland areas along river corridors, like the Helford (SW72), the Fal (SW83), the Camel (SW97), the Fowey (SX15) and the Tamar. Wood-sedge has been recorded in the Abbey Wood on Tresco, Isles of Scilly (SV81X).
