Plant Families

What are the underlying evolutionary relationships and patterns in plants? In this foundational course, you will learn the botanical terms used to describe plants and flowers, the evolutionary/phylogenetic basis for classification, and the identifying characteristics for several major plant families common to New England. With diagrams, images, and further resources offered to reinforce the concepts, you will apply the new material through indoor and outdoor assignments and peer forums. This Basic Certificate online core course is self-paced, with opportunities for peer discussion, expert access for questions, and field projects. A facilitator will guide you in your learning, review your assignments, and answer your questions. It typically takes at least 12 hours to complete. Download the syllabus. Registration closes on July 18, two months before access ends on September 12.
