Frequently asked questions about Sauvages de ma rue
Here you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions about Sauvages de ma rue.
1. When to carry out this protocol?
We advise you to carry out this protocol when the flowering plants are most easily recognisable, i.e. when the flowers are present, i.e. either at the beginning of the school year or in spring.
2. I can't identify a species...
To identify plants, all means are good: paper or electronic flora. However, sometimes it is difficult to identify a plant (for example if it is not in flower). You can indicate "not determined" and attach a photo when entering the data.
There is also nothing to stop you from coming back a few days later to try to determine it again (it may have flowered in the meantime), you can then modify your record.
3. Can I participate in my school yard?
Yes, all interstitial spaces are eligible, so you can participate in the school yard, on a pavement...
4. In what type of plot can Sauvages de ma rue be carried out?
With this protocol, we are only interested in wild plants that grow in interstitial environments (cracks in concrete, edges of walls, feet of trees, etc.). We therefore do not carry out an inventory in areas that are too large (football pitch, park, etc.).
5. What is a wild plant?
A wild plant is a plant that grows spontaneously, unlike horticultural plants planted by gardeners.
But over time, some garden centre plants have ended up colonising our streets spontaneously (e.g. passionflower).
