Ash Dieback Survey
The Ash Dieback survey has now started, and will be running until late 2016. Further details are available on the poster and on the BRC website at http://www.brc.ac.uk/splash/.
Recorders needed! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your sampling squares.
This is part of a wider DEFRA funded project to investigate new approaches to biological recording, which is being led by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and involves a range of national societies and recording schemes.
Lichens on Ash
Several other studies have been carried out, using the records already held in the BLS database to determine which lichens occur as epiphytes on ash and which might be most at risk if there is high mortality of ash trees. A summary can be found on the Conservation pages, and the posters that were on display at the 2014 AGM can be downloaded below.
