A plant community extending over a large area and dominated by trees, the crowns of which form an unbroken covering layer or canopy. The bosque along the Rio Grande has evolved significantly since the introduction of exotic species prior to 1900 and the construction of flood-control and bank-stabilization projects. During the last 60 to 70 years, the bosque has developed in an area that was formerly semibarren flood plain.

The Botany Section meets fortnightly on a Tuesday at 8 pm and is always pleased to welcome new members. Our evening meetings consist of general topics concerning plants and their habitats and discussions of observations made by members. During the winter months the second half of the meeting is often spent showing slides of Jersey's plantlife or occasionally of the flora encountered on visits abroad. Recently the Section has been involved in the BSBI Scarce Plant Survey when numerous records were collected to be included in an atlas to be published shortly. Locally, over the past two years, a survey of churchyard plants has been carried out and this year a start is to be made on surveying both wet meadows and hedgerows. Mapping of selected species is a further area of study and one which is ideal for beginners who wish to become involved. As a member you will be able to contribute to these surveys and gain a wider knowledge of Jersey's flora both past and present. If you are interested please join us one evening to find out more.
