About the event

Cow-parsley on road verges, or hogweed and wild carrot in meadows, are very familiar, but the umbellifers have a reputation for being ‘difficult’, because they all look alike (at least when crowded together in illustrated floras!).  In fact, the members of this distinctive family are readily separated on closer examination, even without ripe fruits.  By the end of the day you should be able to identify all the common species in our area.  The group contains several useful indicator species, especially in wetland habitats and grassland, so are helpful in assessing habitats.
