Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Plant-lore Archive: August 2014

0268 Old ManAlthough no systematic collecting was organised during the month a number of interesting records were received.  Thanks to Maria Long, the BSBI’s Irish Officer, for her information from Ireland.  The Archive currently holds 6814 items of information from 1712 contributors.

The updating of the database from which the Local Names page on the website is derived is almost complete and we hope that this can be uploaded soon.  4191 searches were made of the website during the month.  All users of the website are requested to send in suggestions regarding how it might be improved.
