Are you participating in the National Plant Monitoring Scheme? If you are, you need to be able to work out what sort of habitat your plots are in and sometimes, that's not as straightforward as you'd think!

Fortunately, there are lots of extremely useful resources available to NPMS participants and the latest of these is a series of videos, courtesy of our colleagues at FSC.Tom.Bio

Click here to find the links for videos on how to identify these four habitats: dry acid grassland, dry heathland, neutral pastures and meadows, and neutral damp grassland.

Of course there's nothing to stop you browsing the excellent NPMS website even if you haven't (yet) registered for the scheme! If you do, you'll also see this blogpost about NPMS training in Scotland.
