Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Identifying Bryophytes for Conservation and Recording

This course will focus on developing the higher level field and laboratory skills required to identify some of the more difficult genera. This will involve fieldwork and laboratory sessions. Short talks will cover the conservation of bryophytes and bryophyte recording in the British Isles. This course, which is part of the MSc in Biological Recording run by Manchester Metropolitan University, is suitable for those with some knowledge of bryophyte identification, e.g. people who have recently attended a 2-day introductory course or who can identify a reasonable number of common species.

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.

This is one of a series of courses run jointly with Manchester Metropolitan University contributing to the MSc Biological Recording and Ecological Monitoring and the PG Certificate in Biological Recording. To gain university credits you must be registered for the Masters programme in advance of this course.
