Introduction to Grasses, Sedges & Rushes
23 June 2018, 10:00 - 14:30 (Add to calendar)
Grasses, sedges and rushes constitute a significant proportion of our British flora. Often they are indicators that allow the recognition of different plant communities or habitats. However, they can look very similar and can thus be seen as problematic to distinguish and identify.
This workshop will examine the structures and characters of each family and familiarise participants with terminology commonly used in guides and keys. By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to recognise some of the commoner species and be able to use a key to identify others.
This event is being run in partnership with the National Trust at Lyme Park and as part of the South West Peak Glorious Grasslands project.
