Arable Plants Survey Form

Information to help you complete this form:

  • Details of the location of the site are essential. Eight-figure grid references (e.g. ST35466791) are most useful for the exact location of species records or a six-figure grid reference (e.g. ST354679) of the centre of the field. The owner should be assured that no information will be made public. Soil type can be recorded in broad categories e.g. chalky, heavy clay, sandy loam etc.




  • Number of years the site has been within an arable rotation. If this is an estimate, please indicate with a ‘c.’ before the number (e.g. c.50).




  • The list of plants to be recorded includes 122 species - ranging from those that are still locally frequent to those that are now extremely rare. To assess the botanical quality of an assemblage of species, the combined totals of each species score should be calculated, irrespective of the abundance of each individual species.




  • Record relative abundance on the DAFOR scale using one letter per present species:
    D = Dominant, A = Abundant, F = Frequent, O = Occasional, R = Rare




  • It is useful to know something of the overall composition of the plant community. The most abundant species should be recorded. It is also useful to know whether there are any species present that might be a problem to conservation management, for instance Cleavers, Upright Brome or Black Grass.




  • Any details of the site, which you feel are relevant, should be included in the comments section. These could include descriptions of the field boundary, adjacent habitats of importance, management factors (e.g. game cover crops etc.).




  • A small sketch map is helpful. This should show the position of the uncommon species within the field boundary. There should be an indication of scale and a north point if possible.
