Phase 1 Habitat Survey Day – Part 2
About the event
Our Phase 1 Habitat Survey Days is a two-day course with Part 1 on 18th June and Part 2 on 2nd July 2021.
Following on from the site visit to acid grassland, mire, heathland and woodland habitats in Part 1, Part 2 offers a whole day in the field looking at a variety of other habitats. These habitats will include chalk grassland and a range of neutral grassland types from unimproved lowland meadow to rank grassland and other vegetation types to allow for a range of phase 1 habitats and their indicator plants to be experienced.
Part 2 is aimed at professional ecologists, students and interested amateurs who are already familiar with Phase 1 habitat survey basics as covered in ‘Introduction to Phase 1 Habitat Survey course - Part 1’ or those familiar with basic Phase 1 who want to learn more about identification of key indicator plant species for different habitat types.
By the end of the session, it is expected that participants will:
- Learn to identify some key indicator plant species to help distinguish different grassland habitats
- Be able to distinguish different broad habitat types for Phase 1
- Improve quality of target notes for survey reports
- Improve general plant ID skills
The cost for this two-day course is £110 per person
Part 1 on 18th June is an introduction to Phase 1 Habitat Survey methodology as used by professional ecologists to map and record sites.
