Conserving Woodland 2- Assessing habitats
21 September 2017, 10:00 - 15:00 ( Add to calendar )
With guidance from your tutor Paul Ritchie, we will identify where the important habitats are found in Britain. Discussions will take place about biomes in the northern hemisphere and habitat types in the UK, as well as the importance of coppice management for people and wildlife. The group will then carry out a basic habitat survey, assess the habitat structure of woodland and consider the impact of natural succession on habitats.
You will learn how to describe the key features of deciduous woodland in the UK and list the four primary aspects of diversity in woodland.
This is a level 2 (GCSE level) course and is aimed at beginners who wish to start learning about nature conservation in British woodland.
