Habitat Indicator Species ONLINE Online

Mar 15, 2022 · ,
An online course giving participants an overview of terrestrial lowland habitats and the key indicator species which define them

Habitat Indicator Species (Phase 1 and NVC)

A two-thirds of a day online course giving participants 

  • an overview of the key Phase I, UK Habitats and NVC communities found in lowland Britain
  • detailed information on the indicator species which one should look for while surveying

The purpose of much botanical survey is to tell us what is going on in the landscape around us – is it being over-managed, or unmanaged? Has the land been subject to agricultural improvement? What type of soil is it? Is it a habitat which is likely to support a wide range of species?

This course covers the basics of habitat assessment, from Phase I through UK Habitat Classification to the very basics of the National Vegetation Classification system. In particular, we will become familiar with the key indicator species, which immediately tell you what sort of habitat you are in and point you in the right direction for final classification.
