This is an introduction to the identification of some flowering plant families, including their ecology and uses. We will consider their ecosystem services, the effect of development and land-use change, invasive species, rare and legally protected species, and the use of indicator plants in interpreting change.
The workshop is one stand-alone day. It will consider simple methodologies for investigation and sources of information and will include examination of specimens. The emphasis is on flowering plants.
Level: Suitable for: beginners with no formal botanical training but an interest in plants, consultant ecologists wishing to improve their plant identification skills, and academic biologists seeking to develop their botanical knowledge further.
