This training experience aims to equip you with a basic identification ability, and a much richer knowledge and appreciation of plants; their diversity and ecological function, application and use in different cultural contexts, different scientific survey techniques along with their edible and medicinal values. The discipline of naming and identifying plants is crucial for land managers; fundamental decisions about habitat management are based on a sound knowledge of plant makeup. This three day course will better equip you to identify families of plants, giving you a launch pad to take it further. It aims to inspire you with different and interesting ways of remembering plants, family groups and ecological strategies.
