The flowers of woodlands may be thought of as representing the “natural” vegetation of lowland England, but the importance of forest products (timber, fruit, fungi and game) means that human management over centuries has strongly affected the places woodland flowers grow and in what combinations.

Much of the day will be spent in a fine example of the boulder-clay woodland that characterises the old boundary between Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire. We will explore the variety of woodland flora, and see how past history and conservation action are reflected on the woodland floor.

The day will also include class sessions supplying the background with which to understand what we observe in the field. The day should mean that participants can not only identify the most important plants of shady places, but also what their presence may tell them about ecology and history.
