Group Description

Orkneybotany is a forum to bring together anyone interested in the botany of Orkney. The main area of interest will be the wild flowers, ferns, rushes, sedges and grasses. Stoneworts, mosses, liverworts and lichens will also be included.

Currently anyone may subscribe to Orkbotany but we would prefer folk who reside in the isles and are actively involved with the identification and recording of the Orkney Flora. Potential members are screened to prevent spam. All members have the option to receive emails posted to the group, a digest, or no emails. Only members of the group can post, respond to letters, and post photos.

The aim of the list is to provide a friendly, informative forum for folk interested in all things botanical at any level, to communicate, share local knowledge and raise awareness.

Please treat all botanical sites with respect and obey the local access code at all times. Please do not post grid references for rare species.

Please do not copy postings to other sites

Please sign posts with a first name and general location.

You are welcome to add photographs to the site. Firstly create an album and then save your photographs in this album. Try and only add photographs which refer to postings. Please label the image with a name/explanation (?) area and date/year. Hopefully this will stop the page becoming too cluttered and make photographs easier to find and archive. If you have a lot of natural history photographs to share I suggest setting up your own webspace such as picasaweb (see links) and adding a link to Orkbotany.
