Ancient woodlands have been around for many centuries - long enough to develop ecosystems that are rich, complex and irreplaceable.

FSC Ancient Woodland Indicator Plants features over 40 flowering plants and ferns that provide evidence that a site has been continuously wooded for hundreds of years.

The beautiful colour illustrations are grouped by woodland type: lowland base-rich woods, upland acid woods and woods on boggy soils. Also included is a table summarising the ancient woodland plants that are best suited as indicators in each part of the country.

Ancient Woodland Indicator Plants was produced in partnership with the Woodland Trust.
