Fourth Report of the Botany Committee

Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol.  44, (1912) pp. 125-135.


W.P. Hiern. (Ed.)

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Committee’s Fourth Report was presented at the Association’s Jubilee Exeter meeting, 24th July, 1912. The Association’s Botany Section was founded in 1908 to promote the study and enjoyment of Devon's wild plants, including bryophytes (mosses), lichens and fungi. During July the summer of 1911, Rev. W. Moyle Rogers visited the Dart valley and neighbouring hills and consequently produced for the Committee a list of the plants he observed. Records for the parishes of Ashburton, Buckland-in-the-Moor, Holne, Staverton, and Widecombe-in-the-Moor (in the No. 6 Torquay botanical district), and Buckfastleigh East, Buckfastleigh West, Rattery, and Dartington (in the No. 7 Plymouth botanical district) were also supplied by Mr. Rogers. The Report can be found in a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal that can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
