This Field Study was a continuation of previous ones looking at
C. hederifolium that had started in 2007 with a Field Study to Corfu.
The series of studies set out to answer these questions:
- C. hederifolium subsp. crassifolium, how widely is
it distributed and where are the geographical
boundaries between this subspecies and
- Is it possible to look at plants in their
natural habitat, and make an accurate
judgement based solely on their morphology.
Although no live plants were collected during this field study, 19 sites
were recorded (18 surveyed), with leaf samples collected from 23
plants for laboratory analysis, and 70 plants for herbarium specimens.
A report of the 2018 field study was published in the
Cyclamen Society Journal Vol. 42 No. 1, June 2018.
