Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

AIDGAP guides

The aim of AIDGAP series is to produce accessible keys suitable for non-specialists from sixth-form age upwards. All AIDGAP guides are initially produced as test versions, which are circulated widely to students, teaching staff and environmental professionals, with the feedback incorporated into the final published versions. In many cases the AIDGAP volume is the only non-technical work covering the taxa in question.
