Keeping up with changes in plant names can be challenging, but it reflects our expanding understanding of the plant kingdom based on genetics, a closer look at plant form, and new ways of analyzing relationships. Learn how to make sense of this new plant universe from one of the best botanists in the field, Arthur Haines. In the final session of this 5 session series, students will gain insight into the breadth and complexity of plant identification. Hybridization and phylogeny will be discussed to provide a deeper appreciation for the role of evolutionary history in understanding organismal relationships.

Note: We recommend starting with Session 1; Sessions 2-5 may be taken in any order. Recommended text: Plant Systematics: A Phylogenetic Approach.
