To help the new MSc Plant Diversity students settle in, and to provide us with a baseline against which we can tailor our teaching, the annual plant ID quiz is now running. For each of 18 samples the students were asked to name the plant Family, Genus and species and explain why.
How well can you do? All these items were collected on Whiteknights campus today. One sample is not strictly a plant but has been treated as so in traditional botany and botanical survey. Not all are native species.
