Plant Families (online)

What are the underlying evolutionary relationships and patterns in plants? In this class, we use both microscopic and field investigation to decipher the clues to familial relationships and classifications of the region’s plants. You will learn botanical terms to describe plants and flowers, the evolutionary/phylogenetic basis for classification, and the identifying characteristics for several major plant families common to New England.
