Introduction to Botany
Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 - Wed Apr 18, 2012, 10am - 12noon
Tickets: Members: $160 Non-members: $180
Instructor: Dr. Tim Block, The John J. Willaman Director of Botany, Morris Arboretum
This class will introduce participants to the biology of plants, their evolution, and their importance in our lives. Six weekly sessions
will cover how plants are structured, how they function, genetic regulation, classification of the plant kingdom, and ecological and
environmental considerations. Little prior knowledge of biology will be assumed. This class will help prepare participants for more
specific and/or advanced botany offerings at the Arboretum. This is not, however, a plant identification course.
