Grasses, sedges and rushes can be seen as a bewildering mix of similar looking plants; through this course you will be able to understand the structures and characters that each of the species has. By the end of the course participants will be able to recognise many of the commoner species and be able to use a key to identify those they don't recognise. We will visit a wide range of habitats and see how this group fits into the ecological landscape. *MMU accredited. Contact [email protected] for information.
