Glaucous Pirri-pirri-bur Acaena caesiiglauca which was in the old list on this site, has now been given a full species description in New Flora of the British Isles Edition 3 by Clive Stace
on page 262.
That name was acceptable only a short time ago but it has changed in Stace
3 so the whole line is shaded in grey.
The box also contains the new name, the names of the authors if known, and page numbers for each of the editions of New Flora so that the user can look the old and new names of species up quickly. (Professor Stace has told me that the pagination between reprints remained the same so the page references should work).
This is a new name in Stace
3 and allowing the cursor to settle on the systematic name reveals a different coloured box of information (see below).
Our reference list for many years was "List of vascular plants of the British Isles" by J.E.Dandy and later by D.H. Kent with the latest supplements by Clive Stace
In 2009 the WFS
decided that New Flora of the British Isles by Clive Stace
could be added to this reference list.
2 or Stace
3 meaning that species is given a full description in New Flora of the British Isles.
Species which cannot be included have " Clement" in this column.
Some of these plants may appear in Stace
3 as "other genera" or "other species" but unless they have a full description they are not part of the accepted list for the WFS
For example in the above extracts, Alyssum serpyllifolium at the bottom, is recognised by Clement only and does not appear either in Kent's list or in Stace
2 was reprinted in 2005
Supplement 3 to List of Vascular plants published in February 2006
BSBI2007 list of all British Plants published online
3 was published in 2010
This means that the BSBI2007 list which the WFS
used as basis for its reference contained some changes to names which were eventually to appear in Stace
3 in 2010.
These changes had not been published in Stace
Similarly BSBI2007 has access to Supplement 3 of Kent's list and so was more up-to-date than Stace
as our reference for Common names as well as systematic ones.
The important information it carries is either a reference to Stace
, to the WFS diary or to Kent or one of its supplements.
