Do you want to learn how to identify a range of plants down to species and sub-species level?

This one day course will give participants the confidence to identify a wide range of common plant species using plant components, such as stem, leaf, bract, inflorescence, roots/bulbils, reproductive organs and hairs as identifying features. Training will also cover using botanical keys to identify plants. We will also be looking at the naming rules and hierarchical structure of plants, sub-species and hybrids (taxonomy). The park consists of 400 acres of grasslands, woodlands and riparian habitat (River Alyn). If weather permits, training will include a short field survey within the park.
