Workshop description:
When one becomes familiar with a relatively small number of botanical structures it is possible, by using botanical keys, to identify any wild or naturalised flowering plant in Ireland. This workshop will introduce you to these structures and we will then use this knowledge to key out an array of wild plants using the 8th edition of Webb’s ‘An Irish Flora’.

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is a national organisation for the collection, collation, management, analysis and dissemination of data on Ireland’s biological diversity. Biodiversity data are a key requirement for understanding our natural surroundings, for tracking change in our environment and for gaining a greater insight on how we benefit from, and impact upon, the ecosystem goods and services provided by biological diversity; a national asset which contributes at least €2.6 billion to the Irish economy each year. The Data Centre was established by the Heritage Council in 2007 and is funded by the Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The Centre is operated under a service level agreement by Compass Informatics Limited, an information and location technologies company focused on applications in natural resources and planning.
