This is the first flora to be written for county Waterford, and a great tribute to Paul Green’s meticulous and thorough fieldwork. Paul Green has spent the past 10 years working on the flora, and it contains detailed introductory chapters outlining the work involved, some of Paul’s favourite botanical walks, a botanical history of the county and a description of the habitats found in the county. The species accounts give a summary of the status, ecology, and distribution of 1,530 taxa recorded since 1746. For the majority of species there are tetrad maps.

The National Biodiversity data Centre have launched an interactive Web Flora to coincide with the publication.
