Gymnosperm, angiosperm, economic botany presentations

The SC/SS 115 Ethnobotany class students gave presentations on gymnosperms, angiosperms, and plants with economic value. Rophino and SepeBrianna made a particularly good poster on monocots versus dicots.

Amilain and Elizabeth did a superb job of demonstrating the periderm, phloem, and xylem layers using Hibiscus tiliaceus. Elizabeth even found a very thin, translucent layer between the phloem and xylem that may indeed have been the cambium.

Deisleen presented on black pepper, a locally grown plant with both economic value for Pohnpei and an unfortunate history on Pohnpei.

Kasinta did a fine job presenting cinnamon.
