Yesterday evening, Plantife’s series of webinars on monitoring change (short term and long term) in meadow species composition began. If you missed it, that’s a pity, but they should all become available as recorded presentations in due course – when they become available, we’ll let you know. They continue every Monday evening up to (and including) 15 November:
Mon 25 Oct: Magnificent Meadows Cymru: How to make a wildflower meadow
Mon 1 Nov: Magnificent Meadows Cymru: How to make a mini wildflower meadow in your garden, park, school or hospital
Mon 8 Nov: Magnificent Meadows Cymru: Meadow surveying methods – Every Flower Counts
Mon 15 Nov: Magnificent Meadows Cymru: Meadow monitoring methods – Rapid Grassland Assessment
You can find out more here, about Plantlife Cymru’s Magnificent Meadows Cymru work , and the Plantlife Meadows Hub is a useful resource.
In the meantime, two presentations very relevant to CMG have become available to watch on the BSBI website, they were given at the BSBI’s AGM which was held online in July, and the online meeting meant that the presentations could be recorded. The first is by Barbara Jones on conserving and restoring upland plants, which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjCAougi4TM and the second is by Stuart Smith on the work underlying the recently published BSBI book on Grassland plants of the British and Irish lowlands , and you can find this talk here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwMYb18yE8g
