In 2017 it was noted by the Friends of Hob Moor that the flowering of buttercups across the site appeared to not be as prolific as in previous years. Therefore we are very pleased to be working with the council in order to monitor this and we need your help.
There will be a project in the next couple of weeks to measure the cover of buttercups (Ranunculus spp.) in North Lane Meadow by recording the number of plants flowering, and the percentage cover of plants in 30 1x1m quadrats selected using a ‘W’ independent sampling walk. If you would like to help us with this please get in touch and we can provide more details. Please contact our secretary directly firstname.lastname@example.org
