BIO 3330 - Field Botany and Dendrology


Credit(s): 4

This course introduces students to the principles of classification and identification of the vascular plants. The lectures cover phylogenetic and artificial systems of classification, nomenclature, phytogeography, and the concept of natural variation within populations and its evolutionary significance. The laboratory centers on a study of the major divisions of vascular plants. Specimens collected in the field are compared with the herbarium collections. Students learn to use keys and interpret technical descriptions. Two collections of 25 specimens are required: herbs in flowering condition and woody plants in the winter condition. The course requires two two-hour lab/lectures per week.
