Plant Identification in New England


This course will cover native, introduced, and cultivated plant species common to the Northeast, many of which are suitable for planting. Through an emphasis on family characteristics which apply to garden and woodland plants alike, students will explore the plants’ use in several project sites, addressing issues of sustainable landscaping and required maintenance. Weeds and invasive plants, ecological communities, wildlife attractiveness, and adaptive plant reproductive strategies will also be discussed. Students should bring to the first class a list of books, no more than five, you most commonly use to identify plants.
