James robertson and the botany of bute scotland uk 1768



James robertson and the botany of bute scotland uk 1768



Watsonia 16(1): 65-74



In 1768, during a visit of 18 days to the Isle of Bute, James Robertson recorded 445 plant species, comprising 357 angiosperms, one gymnosperm, 22 pteridophytes, 26 bryophytes, 16 lichens, 22 algae and one fungus. This long list demonstrates the high standard of botanical recording in mid-18th century Scotland. Excluding about 12 species that were certainly or probably misidentified, 35 species of vascular plant have no present records for the island. These include several geographical and/or ecologically noteworthy plants such as Anacamptis pytranidalis, Apera spica-venti, Calamagrostis canescens, Coeloglossum viride, Cruscuta europaea, Deschampsia setacea, Polygonum viviparum and Vaccinium vitis-idaea. In the manuscript, "[Valeriana] peregrina" may be a transcriber's error for Veronica peregrina.
