Flora Locale

Please note: The Flora Locale Trustees earlier this year agreed that Flora locale has met its primary objective raising the profile and benefits of native planting and will close and cease to exist at a date in 2018 to be finalised. 

Flora locale was established in 1998 as an independent charity.  Our aim is to promote and advance the conservation and enhancement of native wild plant populations and plant communities in relation to creative conservation and ecological restoration.

Floral Images

FloralImages is a collection of pictures of the North-western European flora - mainly the UK and Ireland. If you are trying to identify a plant or flower then browse the colour groups or search the common name index if you think you know a name for it. If you know which family the plant is in then the Botanical Family index will help you.

FSC ID signpost


Tom.bio's ID Signpost is an online searchable catalogue of UK biological identification resources. A key feature is that the records of ID resources are crowd-sourced. This means that it can be kept up-to-date more easily and have a much wider reach than if only a few people were able to edit it.

Good places to see dragonflies in Wales - Powys

Within the British Dragonfly Society (BDS) there are two main inter-linked areas of interest, dragonfly recording and dragonfly conservation. The first of these consists of a dedicated group of individual enthusiasts each collecting and supplying records to a Dragonfly Recording Network of Vice County Recorders. The purpose of these records is not simply to document what is present, but also to inform the second main area of interest, that of dragonfly conservation. Records help us to understand the value of a site and added notes about population size and breeding behaviour allow us to assess the importance of an area for species survival. Dragonflies are good indicators of the health of a habitat, so any variation in distribution or population size can indicate changes on a wider environmental scale.

Lichens of Wales

The Lichens of Wales website aims to bring together in one place diverse sources of information related to the conservation of lichens in Wales.
Lichen on rock
Wales, for its unit area, has the highest diversity of lichen species in the world. These occur on a range of substrates in a wide variety of habitats. For example - on bark of trees in semi-natural deciduous woodlands, parklands and wayside trees; on rocks in the Welsh uplands and by the coast; on soil, sand or peat in shingle heath, dune-slacks and mires. Man-made environments can also be important - church walls and gravestones for example; or worked timber such as gateposts and planks. Among the "specialities" of Wales are the metallophyte communities found on spoil at the many abandoned lead mines, particularly in Mid-Wales.
