Northumbrian Botany

Wednesdays from 28 Jan, 10.15am-12.15am.
Janet Simkin leads this 10-session course to explore the rich variety of local habitats and their plants, from islands and coastal denes to the border mires and North Pennine lead mines. We will concentrate on flowering plants, but ferns, lichens and bryophytes will get a look in as well and we will discuss aspects of plant biology, identification and ecology. There will be field trips, including two all day meetings.
