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.
