List of the vascular plants of Britain and Ireland

This is the parent page for the list of vascular plants of Britain and Ireland. Because of the size of the list, it is spread across multiple pages.

Part 1 covers ferns and allies (Lycopodiopsida, Equisetopsida and Pteridopsida)

Part 2 covers the conifers (Pinopsida)

The remaining parts cover the flowering plants (Magnoliopsida):

The list gives an English name and a scientific name for each species, and two symbols are used to indicate status (e for extinct species, and * for introduced species).
