Wild City map gives the location of nearly 200 specimens collected between 2010 and 2018. There are over 120 different species.


Specimens have been gathered from gardens, green spaces, bombsites and from the wayside. There are many gaps on the map - these areas are not necessarily devoid of wild plants, but are where collecting has been difficult, for example on private land. The City is also a very ‘clean’ environment; streets may be sprayed with herbicide to remove self sown ‘weeds’ and green spaces are cultivated to eliminate invaders. But mainly because we don’t have sufficient resources to collect everywhere.
