Northern Stream Carr Survey

A descriptive plant survey of a small wet woodland

by Gillian Dunkley

This survey was carried out on a voluntary basis as part of the Northern Study Area Wetland Project, at the Woodland Education Centre in Offwell, Devon, South West England. It is a descriptive plant survey of a small wet woodland area known as the Northern Stream Carr. This is close to a much larger area of Wet Woodland in which a full ecological plant survey has been carried out. The results of this survey can be accessed here.
