ANPC WORKSHOP on plant identification for grassy ecosystems, Riverina and South-west Slopes NSW
The ANPC is hosting a two day workshop on plant identification for grassy ecosystems in Deniliquin NSW 24th – 25th September 2012.
The workshop will introduce participants to grassy ecosystems, their diversity, ecology and provide the skills and information required to positively identify a range of common grassland plants.
We will use some of the most commonly encountered plant groups, including grasses, eucalypts and daisies, to introduce you to the best identification resources (printed, on-line, and interactive). You will also learn how to access the experts through the identification services of the major herbaria. Along the way we will de-mystify identification ‘keys’, and introduce you to useful field characters to look for.
The workshop is targeted at the beginner level, but will also provide a good opportunity for those more experienced in plant identification to refresh their skills.
Further information, including a full program and registration details can be found here.
Places are limited.
