Plant TaxonomyCertificate in Native Plants

May 19, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Certificate in Native Plants Core Course

$105 General Admission, $94.50

 

 

Taxonomy is the branch of science that names and classifies plants, animals, fungi, microbes, etc.  Using data from genetics, biochemistry, physiology, and morphology (observations of leaves, flowers, roots, etc.), a plant taxonomist analyses this information to reveal groupings, relationships, and ultimately names. Simple dissection and observation of plant parts can quickly reveal the identity of most species. We shall turn to the world of plant morphology during this course. Our goals are to familiarize you with the basic characteristics that botanists look at when investigating an unknown plant and to introduce you to the use of classic ID tools like dichotomous keys (decision trees) to distinguish this plant from that. Bring your hand lens!
