This statuesque family deserves our attention and respect as an important food plant, for us, and for a wealth of species. They ornament our hedgerows with a sequence of colours from the start of the growing season. Some can cause injury and even death, making it a wise thing to be able to distinguish between species that at a glance can appear similar. This course will focus on the key differences between the members of this family, helping elucidate the guide books and enable the amateur to become proficient at determining what member of the Apiaceae they are looking at.
