Flowering Plant Anatomy

When trying to identify plants using keys, are you confused by botanical terms and can’t quite understand what terms like ligule, phyllary or stipule mean? Worse still, you can’t even find them on your specimen! You will use hand lenses to examine ‘simple’ flowers such as buttercups right through to the ‘dreaded’ grasses. This course will not cover everything you need to know to identify wild plants, but it should help. This course aims to guide you through the basic elements of flowering plant anatomy and explain what some of the apparently tortuous language refers to. Participants will use hand lenses to examine ‘simple’ flowers such as buttercups right through to the ‘dreaded’ grasses (the basics of which are a lot easier than people think).
