FSC Field Guide to Floodplain Meadows
An ideal alternative to a book, its lightweight, shower-proof and easy to use without having to look through page after page! The ideal companion on any bushcraft or nature watching trip!
Produced in association with the Floodplain Meadows Partnership, this new fold-out chart features illustrations of 48 key floodplain plant species, and indicates what they can tell you about management and soil conditions. It is possible to interpret many aspects of a floodplain meadow's history, management, soil fertility and water regime just from identifying the plant species and communities present.
Species-rich floodplain meadows are an internationally rare habitat, now occupying less than 1500 hectares in the UK. They are special because they have a high species diversity and can support a number of rare species.
