Around Britain in 30 bryophytes

Bryophytes often make up the final frontier in botanical knowledge, and though many people find and admire them, putting a name on them can be a different matter!

This course will run over 30 of the most common mosses and liverworts encountered in lowland Britain. It will focus on straightforward features that can be spotted in the field.

The ability to ID a small suite of bryophytes can make the difference between a moderate and excellent botanical survey, as well as enlivening a walk out and about at any time of year. This course won't turn you into a bryologist overnight, but it will open up their world to you as well as getting you confident with the common species you often encounter. 

The course will include a pre-recorded tutorial, followed by a test then a 45 minute Zoom Q&A session.

All proceeds from the course will go to supporting our endangered species conservation work.
