An Introduction to the Identification of Sedges and Rushes
Con, one of Irelandís Carex experts, accompanied by Declan led the morning session. A collection of fresh material and a number of interesting preserved specimens of some recently discovered hybrids were on view.
The afternoon session looked at rushes, the identification of which can be problematical due to the incidence of hybridization within the genus Juncus. The participants brought a considerable range of rushes for determination of the identity of the species.
