Following on from the huge labour that was The Flora of Sussex (2018), Frances Abraham has continued to work on additional accounts of the plants of Sussex, now focussing on the charophytes, a group that was not within the scope of the earlier book.
These aquatic algae are a fascinating group, and Sussex is home to several species which are rare in Britain. Often found in freshwater ditches on the river levels, and on Pevensey Levels, as well as in some dewponds, they have a scattered distribution across the county, yet have been studied here for over 200 years.
The book will be published and launched 15 February at the Sussex Biological Recorders’ Seminar at Haywards Heath.
