Intro to

Botanical Morphology

     Botanical morphology is the gateway to deeper understanding of plants. Plants communicate to us through their forms and shapes. Learning this language allows us to confidently interact with wild plants and fearlessly integrate them into our daily lives, as our ancestors once did. This in-depth look at the science of plant observation and identification will provide the tools to satisfy your primal desire to interact with wild plants.

     In this introductory class, you will gain a foundation of knowledge that will allow you to analyze plant morphological patterns, anatomy, terminology, and many other tools to help you get out in the field, effectively use botanical field guides, and start positively identifying plants.

We will cover:

  • Botanical observation techniques

  • Basic taxonomy and latin binomials

  • Leaf anatomy arrangement, attachment, shapes, venation, and margins

  • Flower anatomy, symmetry, and ovary position

  • Trichomes, Thorns, & Prickles
