A Botanical Site Register for Midlothian (VC83)

In 2021 a Botanical Site Register has been compiled as a companion to the Rare Plant Register (RPR) compiled in 2020. Both are now viewable via a link from the Midlothian webpage on the BSBI website (https://bsbi.org/midlothian). In contrast to the RPR, the Site Register is designed as a spreadsheet in Excel, which has enabled more detail to be included for each record, where available. The Site Register lists the most recent records in the Extant section of the RPR and groups them by hectad and site, instead of by species. An example from the Botanical Site Register spreadsheet is shown.
