Arlington Court (Botany Section)
Sat. 13 April 2019 at 10:30 am
A joint meeting with the Devon Bryophyte Group to look at mosses and liverworts. This is also part of the British Bryological Society’s Spring Meeting, so there’ll be even more experts than normal in attendance.
Arlington is a large National Trust property, containing a historic house and a considerable variety of habitats. Part of the estate was checked in 2014 by the Devon Bryophyte Group and a total of 106 species were found, but due to the large size of the estate and the shortage of time only a relatively small part of the site was checked. Hopefully we can remedy at least some of this; the intention is to concentrate on the unworked southern part, although we can always split the group to enable those interested to recheck the northern end (no doubt some species were missed earlier!). Species already found at Arlington include Bazzania trilobata, Schistostega pennata and Zygodon rupestris.
NON-MEMBERS WELCOME. Bring packed lunch and appropriate footwear. If you wish to attend, please contact the organiser for parking details. Also, meeting details can sometimes change at short notice and if the weather forecast looks poor the meeting may have to be cancelled. You should also check with the leader if you wish to bring your dog.
Note earlier start time of 10:30 (previously advertised as 11:00).
