An excellent background for anyone interested in our huge variety of plant life.

Sarah Watson-Jones

What’s the difference between grass, ferns and mosses? They are plants and have green leaves. Yes, but we need to know a great deal more about the diversity of plants to develop an interest in the environment, field biology, wildlife and gardening. Find out the science behind sorting out members of the Plant Kingdom. (The secret is in their life cycles and structure of their reproductive organs!) From A for anemone to Z for zinnia and all types of conifers, horsetails, ferns and mosses in between, their relationships to each other will be revealed. By examining their structure and studying the evolutionary processes that resulted in this diversity of form, you will be able to place plants in to related groups. There will be plenty of specimens to examine.

      Hi Anna, Not quite sure what you are asking here? If you need a reply please could you be a little more specific as to your query and we’d be happy to respond. Many thanks.

        yes I guess I am asking for a refresher course to force me to use vegetative keys on plants and to give me pointers to doing extended Phase 1 surveys. Also to highlight any species – plant wise and habitat wise that are priority now. Or where I can find the information??
