Progress in Bramble Identification

Dumfriesshire 29th – 30th June 2024
training specialised
led by
Chris Miles, Angus Hannah

This meeting offers an opportunity to develop skills in bramble identification for anyone who has started to explore this neglected group. A brief indoor session on Saturday morning will show us specimens of some species we are likely to encounter and characters helpful for their identification. We will then try out our skills in places nearby. On Sunday we will quickly refresh the id characters and visit other areas to extend the range of brambles seen and contribute to a better understanding of the groups presence in Dumfriesshire. Angus Hannah, Bramble Referee for Scotland will lead the sessions.
