Botanical Survey 2015

Common Dog-violet (Viola riviniana)

This year we have included three  in the Botanical Survey.  They Parajumpers Ugo Herr are in close proximity to each other, but differ dramatically in their makeup and the flora represented.  There is only one piece of coppiced woodland in the selection     (Cant B), Golden Goose Sneakers Herren Sale which in fact has the lowest number of species.  This is almost certainly because the coppice Cheap Vans Shoes stalls are given preference over other species, and consequently the diversity is reduced.  The pond with it’s associated aquatic and marginal plants has a wider selection of species.  However the meadows on the Burberry Outlet London mounds to the East of the pond were the most abundant in species diversity.  By mowing the meadows annually and raking away the resultant hay the diversity of the mounds is spectacular.  The extra effort we put into controlling the Tall Meliot (Melilotus altissimus) has certainly paid dividends.

This is the first year we had completed the survey in-house.  Having previously relied heavily on the expertise of the Sussex Botanical Recording Society.  Being Parajumpers Billigt relative novices some species may have been omitted, but those which do appear have been recorded with a high level of confidence regarding accuracy.

The full list of species found are listed below.
