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 riparia - Great Pond-sedge

i> Carex riparia is locally abundant, forming large stands at the edge of lakes as at Tehidy, north of Camborne (SW64L) and on Par beach (SX05W), and in valley marshes by rivers and streams. Sites for the latter habitat include the Gunwalloe valley (SW62Q), Lerryn (SX15I), and Calstock on the Tamar (SX46J). It has also been recorded on St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly.
