This the second of two classes that will cover the basic principles of Morphology, which is the study of the form, external structure and development of plants; and the basic principles of Taxonomy, which is the study of the general principles of scientific classifications.

These two classes will form a great crash course for beginners who are enthusiastic about learning how and why some plants are named. By knowing the basic morphological characteristics of plants, a plant’s name will become obvious. Once the plant has been identified, it can be placed within categories, a classification system that is part of plant Taxonomy.

Both classes will be taught Dee Wong Himes who teaches horticultural classes at Foothill College

A copy of Plant Identification Terminology, An Illustrated Glossary, by James G. Harris and Melinda Woolf Harris, 2nd Edition, and/or a notepad is recommended but not required.

Location Peninsula Conservation Center (PCC), 3921 E. Bayshore Road, Palo Alto
