Introduction to Umbellifers with Brian Eversham (online and optional outdoor)
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. This workshop aims to give help on identifying 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.
This online workshop also includes an optional visit to Cambourne nature reserve on Sat 26 June (in small group(s). See ticket options.
