Mistletoe Survey Reprise/Ground-truthing

As hinted at in entry for 23rd September, I’m planning some new analysis of the 1990s UK mistletoe survey data this winter.  This will need some help from volunteers – to ‘ground-truth’ some of the more questionable records over the winter period (when mistletoe is easy to spot as the leaves are off the host trees). 

No hurry yet – I need to work out what needs to be checked first – realistically I won’t be able to say what needs to be done until January onwards.  But offers of help are always welcome (you’ll need to be able to correctly identify trees in winter though!).  Full details available in BSBI News 106.  For those who aren’t members of the BSBI I’m posting a pdf of the BSBI News request here.
