Flowering Plant ID

Summary information

A Lifelong Learning Aberystwyth Course

The essential skills developed for identifying flowering plants during this course make it ideal for professional development but also for anyone simply fascinated by plants and ecology.

Examine specimens and become familiar with the huge variety of flower and leaf forms and the equally huge and often confusing terminology used in the wild flower books and ‘keys’. You will be given the confidence to use a ‘flora’ and ‘keys’ and identifying unknown flowering plant species on your own.

Emphasis will be on practical skills with examination and identification taking place mainly in the laboratory but with excursions around the venue to put new found knowledge to the test! This is a fascinating and essential core course for both ecology Certificates. It is an excellent background for anyone interested in both wild and garden plants. Come and enjoy!

Please enquire about the fee waiver scheme which applies to all Lifelong Learning Aberystwyth Courses. If you have no first degree, reside in Wales and are in receipt of certain state benefits, you may be able to get your course fees subsidized, or paid for you.
