Plant ID Using Dichotomous Keys and Online Resources
October 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Identifying Texas plants doesn’t have to involve looking through hundreds of plant photographs trying to find the right one. Join conservation botanist Michael Eason in this class and learn how to use the tools botanists use to identify unknown plants: dichotomous keys, field guides, and online resources. Michael will discuss the advantages of each tool and model their use. There will be hands-on activities in class where students will have the opportunity to put these tools to work identifying collected plants. Participants will receive a free plant. Optional: Students may want to bring a hand lens or magnifying glass, Wi-Fi capable laptop/tablet, camera/phone, and notebook.
Fee: $20 ($18 member)
Instructor: Michael Eason, author, conservation botanist, and San Antonio Botanical Garden Plant Conservation and Research Director
