Bring copies of BSBI Handbook No.9 “Dandelions of Britain and Ireland” by A.A. Dudman and A.J. Richards. 
A number of significant discoveries have been made recently in relation to Irish Dandelions and there is the expectation that further taxa await recognition and description from Ireland.  A number of Irish counties have no dandelions recorded and it is hoped that this event will stimulate some members to begin the collection of good-quality specimens suitable for critical examination.
