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.

Avena sterilis subsp. ludoviciana - Animated Oat

An introduced grass, Winter Wild-oat was found in 1988 at Malpas (SW84L, K.L.Spurgin). Prior to that it was recorded from Par Sands and the Harbour (SX05W, 1928, L.T.Medlin) where it was doubtless a casual introduction.
