Workshop on plant identification for flora of the Hunter Valley
Hunter Valley Hotel Academy, Kurri Kurri TAFE campus
7-8th April 2014
This two day workshop will introduce participants to the plant communities and flora of the Hunter Valley region
and provide the skills and information required to positively identify a range of common plants.
We will use some of the most commonly encountered plant groups to introduce you to the best identification
resources (printed, on‑line, and interactive). You will also learn how to access the experts through the
identification services of the major herbaria.
Along the way we will de‑mystify identification ‘keys’, and introduce you to useful field characters to look for.
The workshop is relevant for all levels of experience from beginners through to those experienced in plant identification and wanting to refresh their skills, particularly in the use of botanical identification keys.
Whilst targeting the flora of the Hunter Valley, the skills learnt are transferable to other regions of Australia.
Learning will be through a combination of theory presentations, practicals and field‑based activities.
