      This class is designed for students who want to develop basic field identification skills and gain familiarity with using the keys in Hitchcock and Cronquist's "Flora of the Pacific Northwest". Students will learn how to recognize approximately 25 of the most common plant families found in Washington. Emphasis is placed on learning the combination of vegetative (leaf and stem) and floral characters that are unique to each family. Class time is spent using dissecting microscopes to examine local native and introduced plants to learn botanical terminology, to practice recognition of plant families, and to gain experience with using the keys in Hitchcock and Cronquist.
      Field Trips: Saturday 3/24 from 1-3 pm on UW Campus; and, Saturday 4/14 a day-long field trip to Deception Pass State Parkmicroscopes, slides and field trips.
