Our botany evening course planned for 2017 is on how to identify and record plants, and what to do with botanical records .
It consists of 10 x 2-hour sessions on Tuesday evenings from 10th Jan (6.30 until 8.30 pm).
The aim is to be able to produce a useful report such as a description of a nature reserve or a consultancy survey of a site. It is suitable for anyone with a little knowledge of botany through to professionals who want to be able to do more with their work. The tutor is Alex Lockton, who has twenty years’ experience working as a lecturer in ecology at Birmingham University and Manchester Metropolitan University, as co-ordinator of the Botanical Society of the British Isles, and as an ecological consultant. He is county recorder for Shropshire and author of The Flora and Vegetation of Shropshire (2015). Each class will start with a short session identifying a plant, and then continue on to a theoretical subject. The winter course will focus on theory and scholarship, and be followed by a summer course on surveying.
