Yellow Composites

Smooth Hawk's-beard (Crepis capillaris) by Terry Dunstan

At first glance, the yellow flowers of the Daisy family (Asteraceae), often known as 'Composites', can all look alike and may appear to be a daunting group for beginners to break into. However, once you have an understanding of the structure of the plant and the parts you need to look at, identification to species level can be relatively straightforward in most cases. This workshop will begin with a classroom session unravelling the mystery of these flowers, followed by a trip out to Porthtowan to test your id skills in the field.
