Brochure Text

If you are prepared for a challenge and something both fascinating and different try the identification of mosses and lichens. Mosses, liverworts and lichens make up an important but often a neglected component of many habitats and are particularly abundant in the clean and moist air of west Wales. Identification usually requires a hand lense and a microscope is sometimes required. Guidance on the use of 'keys' to identify specimens will be given and with confidence and familiarity, the recognition of field characters will start to become easier. There will be plenty of specimens to identify and excursions in to the habitats at the venue, enabling you to develop good basic identification skills and build up a small reference collection of common species. This is a valuable course for professional development as identification skills with these groups are uncommon in field ecologists. Small is beautiful!
