New Species Account published

The BSBI Science Team (Kevin Walker and Pete Stroh) has just published another Species Account, bringing the total to 79.

The latest account is for Orobanche reticulata (Thistle Broomrape) and covers identification, habitats where this parasitic plant is found, biogeography, ecology, threats, management... there are also references to follow up if you want to know more.

This new Species Account - and 78 others - are all available to download free of charge from this page.

The image of Orobanche reticulata on the right is also by Pete Stroh. For a botanist, he's also a pretty good photographer!
