Essential skills for assessing habitats and conservation planning
Tutor: Jan Martin
This two-day course introduces the standard UK method of habitat survey, known as Phase 1. It has a wide range of applications, including nature conservation, habitat assessment and development planning. The course starts with an introduction to the method, followed by a discussion of the practical considerations associated with planning and undertaking such surveys. Field-based activities allow participants to practise the range of skills required and, by the end of the course, you will be able to conduct a basic Phase 1 survey and produce the associated documentation and map. A basic knowledge of plant identification would be useful before undertaking this course.
