Campus Species Lists

This area of the blog is very much an on-going project.  If you find species on campus that are not on our lists do please report them to us – you can email records to c.w.foster@reading.ac.uk and we are also able to view records submitted to national recording schemes via iRecord. Please add images for verification wherever possible.

Lists for major groups are on separate pages, see summary below for group totals. Some of the pages have not recently been updated so some species counting towards the total are not listed here (yet!).

TOTAL = 2217
