Lab Assignment for Unit 13
Return to your field area. Earlier you did a survey of the plant life in your area. Now closely observe the major plant types and identify each one by major group (bryophytes, vascular seedless, conifer, monocot or dicot angiosperm). You should identify at least five different plants; but do more if your field area supports more.
Make a table listing the plant, the major characteristics you observed, and the type of plant. Be sure that your major characteristics include those you used for identification. If you have access to a knowledgeable person or a good plant guide, identify the plant by genus/species or common name.
If weather conditions will keep you from finishing your observations, just let me know; I will accept late labs for field labs.
Post your report to the Moodle site for the Plant Classification Lab.
