Woody Plant Identification

Woody Plant Identification

This three day course is designed to provide the practical skills needed to identify woody plants throughout the year in both leafy and non-leafy (winter twig) conditions. Participants will learn the necessary leaf, twig, bark, flower and fruit features of woody plants needed to identify species regardless of geographic location. The use of both woody plant technical keys (e.g., floras) and resources on the internet will be taught. Herbarium specimens will be used to learn characteristics of woody plants not found in the vicinity of the course. Trips will be made to both wetland and non-wetland sites to practice field identification of woody plant species. Woody plant lists and a USB of fully labeled images illustrating features of woody plants that are used for identification in the field and laboratory will be provided. Course is intended for participants of all levels, including those without any botanical background. 24 contact hours. Instructor: Joseph Thomasson
