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 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.
