Shropshire and surrounding counties have a wealth of varied aquatic habitats with a wide range of species. We will use a range of keys to identify plants to family, genus and species and laboratory sessions in the evening will provide the opportunity to use microscopes and to see voucher specimens of a wider range of specimens.

Nick Law is an experienced field botanist currently employed as a Principal Ecologist with FPCR Environment and Design Ltd. Nick’s interests include vascular plants and bryophytes. He holds a Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) Level 6 Field Identification Skills Certificate (FISC) and is the British Bryological Society Regional Recorder for Warwickshire.
