Course aimed to gain experience and confidence in identifying indicator plants species used in Phase 1 habitat Survey. The course will mainly be field based. The first day will focus on grassland habitats and the second day on heathland habitats. The Phase 1 Habitat Survey can be used as a first approach to habitat assessment and could be a very useful tool to prioritize habitats and decision making.
We will be using the Phase 1 Habitat survey handbook and the FSC Phase 1 habitat guides for grasslands and heathlands as our main resources. Also, we will use The Wild Flower Key book by Rose and O’Reilly and Plant ID by Collins.
