Event description

Description

The National Vegetation Classification system is a standard technique used by ecologists and conservation agencies to determine and describe the various plant communities within Britain. Grasslands are intricate systems composed of communities of species determined by factors such as drainage, nutrient status, altitude and management. This course will explain the methodology, with a specific focus on identifying grassland indicator species. You will also be introduced to a range of different communities and explore the tools and techniques available to support classifying a community. Time will be divided between indoors looking at the theory behind NVC grassland, and outside collecting data and completing NVC surveying in the field.

The course is run by John Handley, Director of CH Ecology, an independent ecologist and consultant, providing surveys and training on behalf of conservation agencies and Local Authorities. John has a background within amenity horticulture as a Technical Manager, providing advice and training to Local Authorities, prominent sports facilities and private land owners. John is an enthusiastic communicator and botanist
