A day spent on the beautiful Montgomeryshire Canal will provide a fascinating combination of natural and man-made heritage, providing access to a variety of common and not so common aquatic species. We will look at the different niches each species occupies including marginals, floating and submerged species. Use will be made of the excellent ‘British Water Plants’ key and by the end of the day participants should feel confident in the use of this key. The only requirements for this course are an enthusiasm for plants and moderate walking ability.

Mark Duffell has had a lifetime interest in plants, gaining the RHS Diploma in Horticulture, becoming Young Horticulturist of the Year in 2001 and completing an MSc in Biological Recording. He now runs Arvensis Ecology, splitting his time between conducting botanical surveys and teaching botanical identification and survey techniques to undergraduate and postgraduate students, consultancies and environmental organisations.
