Introduction to Phase 1 Habitat Mapping and Plant Identification
This two day course focuses on building skills in plant identification and the use and application of Phase 1 survey methodology. Learning is developed through a combination of classroom and field based sessions.
Day 1 will introduce plant taxonomy, with particular regard to some British plant families. Participants will identify examples in the classroom, followed by further application of plant identification using keys during a field trip.
The second day will introduce phase 1 survey methodology. Participants will apply the methodology in classroom-based group-work exercises followed by a field visit integrating the phase 1 methodology with plant-identification.
The course will finish with a discussion of the results collected and a feedback session on writing habitat descriptions
