The plant kingdom is hugely varied and it can be very difficult and daunting to start to identify specimens, especially for families and species that you have never seen before. Most botanists start out identifying plants by comparing their specimens to photographs or illustrations in books. This course is aimed at those people wanting to progress from picture book identification onto proper Floras. By using simple techniques and field guides we aim to identify a wide range of plant families and species. The only requirements for this course are an enthusiasm for plants and moderate walking ability.

Mark Duffell has a lifelong interest in plants with expertise in botany and horticulture. Mark has taught many courses with the FSC and recently with the Montgomeryshire Field Society.
