Identifying the Polygonaceae and Chenopodiaceae (Amaranthaceae). Docks and Goosefoots are two of the more challenging groups of plants to get to grips with - not least because their Latin family names are in a state of flux! This weekend course aims to simplify the process of becoming familiar with a wide range of species and to give you confidence in identifying them with accuracy.
Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service (SBIS) and Suffolk Naturalists Society (SNS) have kindly offered a bursary to support individuals who wish to attend this course to help provide people with the skills and experience to identify and record Suffolk wildlife. Further info can be found HERE.
