Burren Turloughs with Micheline Sheehy Skeffington
In this talk in the series on various habitats of the Burren we will be joined by botanist and educator Micheline Sheehy Skeffington. Micheline taught plant ecology at NUI Galway. She has led annual botanical field courses in the Burren for 30 years and has supervised postgraduate students in the Burren, focusing on sustainable agriculture and working with the Burren Farming for Conservation Programme staff. She specialises in wetland ecology, including turloughs, flood-meadows (the Shannon callows) and peatlands and has published widely on these subjects.
This talk is organised by Burrenbeo Trust – an independent landscape charity with no core funding. We work hard to sustain out 25 plus programmes throughout the year. Please do consider supporting us through donations or membership at www.burrenbeo.com
