Short talks will cover the conservation of bryophytes and bryophyte recording in the British Isles. This course, which is part of the MSc in Biological Recording run by Manchester Metropolitan University, is suitable for those with some knowledge of bryophyte identification, e.g. people who have recently attended a 2-day introductory course or who can identify a reasonable number of common species.
