Looking at grass
A book entitled The Grasses of Ireland by John Feehan, Helen Sheridan and Damian Egan has been produced by Teagasc in association with the School of Agriculture and Food Science, UCD.
It was launched during the Teagasc Farmland Flora and Fauna seminar held in Birr, Co Offaly this week and is available to purchase from Teagasc, Oak Park.
Speakers from the National Biodiversity Data Centre, UCD, BirdWatch Ireland, Bat Conservation Ireland, and the MISE project discussed grasses, flowering plants, trees, bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other small mammals.
Raising awareness of our native farmland wildlife is the objective, Catherine Keena, Teagasc countryside management specialist said.
"It is important that we look for measures that will maintain our flora and fauna."
