So You Want To Know Your Plants?
BSBI's Skills & Training Committee has produced a simple booklet with details of how to start learning plant identification. It has been downloaded more than 10,000 times! The PDF is available here, or if you would like hard copies to hand out to students/learners, email us.
Publications for plant scientists
In 2019, BSBI teamed up with the Field Studies Council to produce this flyer about our publications and made it available to participants at the Gatsby Plant Science Summer School. In 2022, we produced an updated leaflet for the 2022 Summer School, setting out How BSBI can support early-career plant scientists, and the leaflet is now available to download free of charge.
