This 3-week intensive lab and field-based botany course is designed as an introduction to the evolution and diversity of land plants. In lectures and active-learning group workshops we will survey the major groups of the Plant Kingdom including bryophytes, seedless vascular plants, gymnosperms, and angiosperms. In labs, students will gain hands-on experience studying plants with microscopes as we examine the form and function of plant organs, cells, and tissues. On campus plant walks and field trips students will learn to recognize and identify some of the common native plants of the Pacific Northwest. This course fulfills the botany prerequisite for more advanced field-based and taxonomy focused programs such as, The Fungal Kingdom, Field Plant Taxonomy and Field Ecology.
