Interested in floodplain meadows?

The FSC Floodplain Meadows Chart features 48 indicator species of flowering plants.

Species-rich floodplain meadows are an internationally rare habitat, occupying less than 1500 hectares in the UK. They are special because they have a high species diversity, supporting up to 40 plant species per square metre as well as providing a habitat for many rare species.

Many aspects of a floodplain meadow's history, management, soil fertility and water regime can be inferred just from identifying the plant species and communities present.

The Floodplain Meadows Chart was produced in association with the Floodplain Meadows Partnership.
