Introduction to Plant Taxonomy/Classification

September 12, 2015 @ 8:30 am

Plant taxonomy is the science of recognizing, classifying and naming plant species. This fascinating field of study gives insights into evolution, natural history and ecology. Participants in this class will learn about the history of modern taxonomy, the basics of naming plants, the fundamentals of phylogenetics (plant family trees), the plant classification hierarchy and the use of keys in plant identification. Participants will engage in hand-on activities.
