This training course will look at Juncus and Luzula species as well as hybrids. We will look at the ecological importance of rushes, then enjoy a field visit to Slievenacloy after lunch. There will be an opportunity to look at some samples under a microscope, allowing cross-sections to be examined to confirm field identification.
