Need an identification guide to water plants?
From bogbean to bulrush, from water soldier to yellow flag, the FSC Water Plants Identification Chartincludes 54 species of plants found at ponds, lakes, canals and slow-flowing streams and rivers.
Beautiful colour paintings of each plant are grouped by position: submerged plants, floating plants, emergents and marginal plants. This chart is suitable for fieldwork investigations into a hydrosere.
Text on the reverse side looks at the role of water quality and nutrient status in the distribution of plants. Advice is given on the importance of plants in garden ponds and on how to manage them. The ecological process of succession is described and illustrated.
This chart is part of the FSC’s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups. What a great addition to the family holiday packing list, for use around the garden or for groups such as the Scouts or Forest School. If buying larger quantities of guides for groups I will offer a small discount. Please enquire.
The full range of FSC products are available – please enquire if you have seen one that I do not have listed yet.
