ANPC WORKSHOP: Plant identification for grassy ecosystems 24-24 September 2012 Deniliquin NSW

The Australian Network for Plant Conservation is hosting a workshop on Plant identification for grassy ecosystems (Riverina and South – West Slopes) 24th - 25th September 2012 in Deniliquin NSW.

This two day 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.
