Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the conservation designation of the rarer aquatic species in Britain and Ireland. It first presents a list of rare, extinct, vulnerable and endangered plants and a list of scarce species in Britain. The rarest species of vascular plants in Britain are included in the The Irish Red Data Book; 1, Vascular Plants (Perring& Farrcli, 1983). Then, the chapter presents a list of vulnerable, rare and threatened plants in Ireland. It also presents a list of protected species in Europe. Many aquatic plants have a wide distribution and occur throughout the northern hemisphere or (in some cases) virtually anywhere in the world where there are suitable habitats. However, some have a much more restricted distribution. Some of the species listed in the chapter are endemic to Europe, or have primarily European distributions with populations in neighbouring regions or a few outlying areas elsewhere.
