A fundamental technique employed by ecologist, developers, land managers and conservation organisations to help provide a broad-brush understanding of large areas of land, to identify areas that require further investigation, and to target areas for development or conservation. First-rate identification skills are essential to distinguishing plants that determine the habitat, define the dominant species and forms the basis for an evidence-based report. This one-day course will outline exactly how to undertake a Phase I survey, the preparation required, tools needed, what constitutes a useful target note, map and well written report. It will focus on developing key identification skills to undertake this technique effectively across the range of grasslands covered within Phase I surveys.
