The history and distribution of Phyteuma spicatum L. (Campanulaceae) in Britain

By B R Wheeler and M J Hutchings

Abstract

Phyteurna spica turn L. (Campanulaceae) is a rare species in Britain occurring in low numbers in a small area of East Sussex (v.c. 14). Its history has been investigated, and herbarium records and Flora accounts examined, to determine whether it was formerly more widespread and abundant in Britain. It appears that P. spicaturn has always been confined to East Sussex, but that it was more widespread within this vice-county in the past. Anecdotal information also suggests that it was more abundant at the end of the 19th century and during the early 20th century than it is at present
