Plant Identification for Habitat Surveys, Dumyat

Stirling 3rd September 2022
led by
Lindsay Mackinlay

This meeting aims to introduce participants to the main indicator species which assist in habitat classifications, touching on several Phase 1 habitats and NVC plant communities. The workshop is not suitable for complete beginners but is more aimed at those who have some basic or intermediate plant identification skills, who are also interested in understanding the relationships between plant species and the habitats in which they grow. Please note that this is not a training course on Phase 1 habitat or NVC surveys but rather a workshop to assist participants in identifying key plant species in different habitats. The meeting is open to anyone who may have an interest, though priority will be given to BSBI and BSS members in the first instance. It is likely that the workshop will involve some rough walking over the open hill in places. Come prepared for a day in the hills! Places are limited, booking is essential.
