The National Vegetation Classification system is a standard technique used by ecologists and conservation agencies to determine and describe the various plant communities within Britain. Grasslands are intricate systems composed of communities of species determined by factors such as drainage, nutrient status, altitude and management. This course will explain the methodology, with a specific focus on identifying grassland indicator species. You will also be introduced to a range of different communities and explore the tools and techniques available to support classifying a community.
