Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Online botany opportunity

Do you want to be able to identify wild plants correctly, to use a flora and follow a botanical key? Identiplant is now taking bookings for 2016.

This online course, run by Botanical Society of the British Isles (BSBI) and Field Studies Council (FSC), is an exciting and different way to develop your skills as a botanist. The course is delivered and assessed online and you can go out where you live to look for wild plants.


This method of learning offers a chance to receive tuition from expert botanists but without having to commit to a residential or regular attendance to a class.

Dr Brenda Harold, course founder says: "Identiplant has become well established since it first ran in 2013 and has been a real success for the many people who've completed the course. It's great to be involved with offering different ways of learning to ensure that people continue to develop their knowledge of wild plants."
