Plant Families

In this foundational course, you will learn the botanical terms used to describe plants and flowers, the evolutionary/phylogenetic basis for classification, and the identification features for several major plant families common in New England through field observation, dissection, and viewing of plant material under a microscope. We recommend Botany in a Day, Sixth Edition, by Thomas Elpel for the best learning experience in this course. It can be purchased at our Garden Shop.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
