Aquatic Plants

The course will concentrate on the identification and ecology of aquatic and vascular plants and stoneworts in the habitats around Slapton Ley and South Devon, including ponds, lakes and rivers. Most of the time will be spent in the field studying swamp and fen plants growing around the edge of water bodies. There will be evening workshops on the more difficult groups such as water starworts (Callitriche), pondweeds (Potamogeton), water crowfoots (Ranunculus) and stoneworts (Charophyta).
