Identifying Grasses, Sedges, and Rushes
How Does This Course Work?
This part lab and part field course is designed to give participants the knowledge and familiarity necessary to identify members of these difficult families. Participants will learn vocabulary, work extensively with keys, and hone dissecting skills. Participants will be exposed to well over 100 species through prepared specimens and field work.
Field sites will be primarily wetland. Field identification and reinforcement will be stressed whenever possible. Given the course location Carex and numerous grass genera will be emphasized.
This course is designed to accommodate all skill levels. 32 contact hours/ Instructor: Knapp
