Botanical Inventory Methods and Techniques

This course is an intensive training on botanical survey approaches and methods for cataloging the vascular plants in a natural landscape. We will cover the essential steps of planning the survey, including use of field guides, aerial photography GIS (Geographic Information Systems) resources, sampling strategies, and field data form design. Next, we will put the methods into practice by conducting a field survey on conserved land, identifying and recording the plant species and habitats we encounter, and compiling an inventory and accompanying report.
