This workshop introduces participants to the basics of plant identification. No previous
experience with plant identification is required. Lectures on taxonomy, plant structure
and use of plant keys for identification are provided with appropriate field work. It is
preferable but not required to take this workshop prior to the Basic Wetland Delineation
Training Workshop.

Participants are introduced to the process of identifying wetland and aquatic plants using technical keys. No prior use of keys or previous identification experience is assumed, making this truly a “basic” course. Workshop activities include:

  • An introduction to plant keys and plant key structure
  • Basic plant structure and morphology
  •  Woody (trees and shrubs) plant identification
  •  Herbaceous plant identification (with emphasis on rushes, sedges and grasses)
  •  A survey will conclude the planned activities

The workshop runs 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday and Tuesday; 8 a.m.-noon, Wednesday.
