Plants of Virginia

The Appalachian-Blue Ridge Forest ecoregion represents one of the world’s richest temperate broadleaf forests in floral diversity.  This field oriented course will explore the diversity of plants in the region to study basic plant identification and collection techniques, plant anatomy and ecology, and to learn the ethnobotanical uses of local plants (e.g. food, medicine, shelter, etc…) by the Native Americans and others.  At least one weekend field trip will be required.  This course is designed for both science and nonscience students.
