Back to Courses Past and Present

Biological Sciences 263: Plant Biology (Lab), Carolyn Wetzel, Fall 2009

This lab component offers students hands-on experience with plants. Students meet at the Plant House, take several field trips, and use the indoor and outdoor plant collections for observations and experiments.

Course funds are being used to develop revised methods for surveying comparative anatomy and morphology of plant groups. Instead of relying on prepared slides and published plant atlases, students learn to make their own slides and digital plant atlases using plants from the indoor and outdoor collections, thereby learning basic skills in plant biology and having the experience of physically handling and preparing their own materials.
