The Irish Vegetation Classification (IVC) is a comprehensive national vegetation classification. It aims to categorise different types of habitats based on data about which species are present. This work is a collaboration between the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), BEC Consultants and the National Biodiversity Data Centre. Funding has been provided by the NPWS. Find out more here: Biodiversity Ireland.
Philip Perrin (author of the IVC, BEC Consultants) and Fionnuala O’Neill (experienced grassland surveyor, BEC Consultants) will lead this one-day event where participants will get the chance to learn and try out the classification during both class- and field-based sessions.
Photos coming soon.
