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.

Briza media - Quaking-grass

Quaking-grass is very local often growing in base-rich conditions as at Loggans Moor, near Hayle (SW53U), at Gear Sands near Perranporth (SW75S) and on Efford Down, Bude (SS20D). Recently it has also been found at Grove Farm (SX35Y, 1997, I.J.Bennallick), in a meadow near Latchley (SX47B, 1997, M.Atkinson) and near Greenamoor bridge (SX29S, 1993, A.Atkinson).
