A Field and Lab Training

Arnold (Jerry) Tiehm, herbarium curator at the University of Nevada, Reno, will lead a field and lab training in Elko County designed to familiarize participants with common plants of the sagebrush steppe. The course will include an introduction to flower morphology, present examples of many different types and forms of flowers, and introduce students to the use of dichotomous keys for identifying plants to family. These concepts will be introduced in a lab setting on the first workshop day. Students will spend the second day in the field, practicing introductory skills and collecting material to dissect and identify in lab on day three. This course is appropriate for botanical beginners and as a refresher for intermediate students.
