Botany: A Lab Manual is designed to provide students with a hands-on learning experience that will enhance their understanding of plant biology. It includes a detailed examination of plant structure, plant groups, genetics, classification, and other topics pertinent to understanding plants. In addition, this manual includes added labs that move beyond the standard plant anatomy and plant group exercises and are incorporated into all botany laboratory sections. This additional content enables instructors to customize their instruction by choosing those labs that best match the emphasis in their individual course.
The answers to the exercises are available for instructor download from the Instructor Resources tab.
