New England Plant Diversity: Session 4
June 26, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$46 – $54
Keeping up with changes in plant names can be challenging, but it reflects our expanding understanding of the plant kingdom based on genetics, a closer look at plant form, and new ways of analyzing relationships. Learn how to make sense of this new plant universe from one of the best botanists in the field, Arthur Haines. In the session 4 of this 5 session series, students will investigate advanced tricolpate families often referred to as euasterids (e.g., Lamiaceae, Plantaginaceae, Campanulaceae, Asteraceae).
Note: We recommend you take Session 1 first; Sessions 2-5 may be taken in any order. Recommended text: Plant Systematics: A Phylogenetic Approach.
