Field Studies Council One Day Course on Lichens in a Somerset Parkland on Exmoor

A one-day course designed for people who already have an interest in lichens and want to extend their knowledge. The course consists of an introduction to characters used to identify lichens including morphological characters and simple spot tests for chemical compounds, followed by a field visit to collect common lichens on trees and to see a few specialist lichens of ancient woodlands and parklands in the Nettlecombe Park SSSI. FSC fold out keys to lichens will be available for purchase and other keys and literature available for consultation. Participants are also welcome to bring their own specimens to identify in an afternoon lab session.

Pat Wolseley is a lichenologist at the Natural History Museum, London, past President of the British Lichen Society, co-author of Monitoring with Lichens, the FSC fold-out key to Lichens on Twigs and other literature on lichens.
