Sytematic and Herbarium Projects


The aim is to learn how to prepare herbarium specimens or vouchers, which can be used as a display or as a tool for verifying plant names in a living plant collection. The written project is aimed at helping the students to be able to gather the required scientific litterature to be able to identify plants in a collection, create an accurate interpretation display and relate horticulture to the taxonomy of a chosen group.
