Understanding & using the NVC at Ptyxis Ecology

Starts May 2022: This course is designed to follow-on from an introductory NVC course to support you with using the NVC system. We concentrate on how to analyse quadrat data and work with floristic tables to work out what NVC types you have, rather than on how to do a field survey.
