Phase 1 for Development

Summary

This one day training event run by James Simpson will give participants the confidence to carry out their own phase 1 habitat surveys.

Description

A workshop to give participants the confidence to carry out their own phase 1 habitat surveys. This simple technique is essential for describing and mapping vegetation in a standard way, recognised by ecologists throughout the country. For example, it is specified in British Standard BS42020 as the base information for Preliminary Ecological Appraisal. Basic plant identification knowledge is helpful for this workshop.
