VC55: the Botany Group
The v.c. 55 group was started in 2008 by a group of botanical enthusiasts who enjoy sharing field ID tips; as of 2013, our numbers have grown to almost 200. The group encourages BSBI members and their local guests to botanise, learn and record together. We welcome both advanced and beginner botanists on our annual programme of field meetings. From April to October we focus on flowering plants and in winter we switch to gymnosperms, bryophytes and lichens; our winter talks and workshops are hosted by the University of Leicester Botanic Garden.
