Field Botany Lecture

Description: 

Online Course
In this course we address fundamental knowledge that supports the study and appreciation of plants in their natural environments. Emphasis is placed on species found in the southwestern United States. The course begins with the fundamental elements of plant growth, development, physiology, and reproduction. Using this foundation, we then cover plant identification and taxonomy, and how environmental factors affect plant growth, distribution, and assemblage into communities. We conclude with a consideration of roles played by plants in ecological processes and how human-driven processes affect these processes. RNR 230R is open to students in all majors and is a core course in the Natural Resources undergraduate curriculum in the School of Natural Resources & the Environment
