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.

A Red Data Book species, Compact Brome has been known as a bulb field weed on the Isles of Scilly for many years. The most recent record was from Bryher (SV81S, 1995, D.T.Holyoak). It has not been reported from mainland Cornwall since the beginning of the 20th century.
