Green leaves that all look the same and no pretty flowers so difficult to identify! Learn the fundamentals of grass, sedge and rush identification, essential and valuable skills for any field and conservation ecologists and hopefully, by the end of this course, you will know this statement is not true. Emphasis will be on practical skills with identification taking place mainly in the laboratory where there is the time and equipment to fully examine specimens. A range of common species, both flowering and non-flowering, from local habitats will be used. The focus will be on learning how to identify and develop the skills and confidently use a flora. Students should become familiar with a good range of common species relating these species to their preferred habitat and be able to identify these species in the field, producing a portfolio of specimens and a small voucher collection. A valuable course for professional development.
