Shropshire and surrounding counties have a wealth of varied aquatic habitats with a wide range of species. We will use a range of keys to identify plants to family, genus and species and laboratory sessions in the evening will provide the opportunity to use microscopes and to see voucher specimens of a wider range of specimens. This course is part of the University Certificate in Biological Recording run by Manchester Metropolitan University.
