A Lifelong Learning Aberystwyth Course
The essential skills developed for identifying flowering plants during this course make it ideal for professional development but also for anyone simply fascinated by plants and ecology.
Examine specimens and become familiar with the huge variety of flower and leaf forms and the equally huge and often confusing terminology used in the wild flower books and ‘keys’. You will be given the confidence to use a ‘flora’ and ‘keys’ and identifying unknown flowering plant species on your own. Emphasis will be on practical skills with examination and identification taking place mainly in the laboratory but with excursions around the venue to put new found knowledge to the test! This is a fascinating and essential core course for both ecology Certificates. It is an excellent background for anyone interested in both wild and garden plants. Come and enjoy!
