The Basics of Plant Identification

Thursday 21 February, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Suitability: 18+

£5. Booking essential.

How do you identify an unknown plant? Get your head around dichotomous keys, multi-entry keys (punched card keys and computer keys), and learn some of the language used in the keys. Work as a team to make an identification using a flora. Try your hand at making your own key and see if others can use it. Learn about verification of an identification. This workshop will use a range of plants from the Botanic Gardens, particularly ferns, and will be held indoors in the Bowling Pavilion.
