By referring to the summary of the British Flora, in Vol. V, it will be seen that in addition to the score or more of common plants described in detail in this volume, there are over 150 other British plants that are found in meadows or pastures of one type or another, some being common species, others extremely rare.

In studying this section the opportunity may be taken to treat these other species in the same way as those fully described, in other words to elaborate a short life-history of some of the more familiar ones; and to make notes upon them all.
