Survey of Grasses of the Northeast
This workshop focuses on the grasses which are in identifiable condition in late spring and early summer. Key identification characteristics are given for 10 tribes and about 60 genera of common grasses using dried specimens and microscope displays. Following a morning session of lecture and observation of plant materials, there is an afternoon field trip to observe as many grasses as can be found in the time available. Students are expected to have a good understanding of basic botanical nomenclature and concepts for this upper level class. Bring a bag lunch and a good 10x to 15x hand lens.
