Charophytes in Ireland
The BSBI's brief covers the vascular plants and charopytes of Britain and Ireland but the charophytes are often overlooked - they are small and have a reputation for being difficult to identify. A presentation at the 2016 BSBI Recorders' Conference by Claudia Ferguson-Smyth, one of two BSBI expert referees for charophytes, went some way towards demystifying this group and now BSBI's Irish botanists have grasped the nettle: they are organising two 2-day Charophyte Workshops this year, one on 10th-11th May and one on 12th-13th May.
