BSBI and Students

BSBI has a long warm history of working with those that are studying our flora and of welcoming students as members. Recognising the need to equip the next generation of plant enthusiasts and budding botanists, we offers a wide range of opportunities for you to get involved.

Membership of the BSBI can connect you with a community of like-minded enthusiasts and a host of experts; you can grow your knowledge, support your study and add to your CV by taking part in our ID courses and field meetings. We also provide access to a huge number of resources that you can use to support your research, such as webinar videosdistribution maps and data.
