Plantlife: Important Plant Areas

Colleagues may be interested to know that Plantlife have created a map of Important Plant Areas (or IPAs) which is now available on-line. The map does exactly what it says on the tin and points out areas of landscape that have been identified as being of the highest botanical importance. 

150 IPAs have been established across the UK, and Plantlife are actively encouraging an ‘ecosystem-based’ approach to their conservation. 


The map and the links to the different areas can be seen at:
