Vegetative morphology

Vegetative morphology is also an "organizational" day combining both coverage of vegetative morphology and laying out the next few class sessions. After a brief introduction to some of the basic terminology in the classroom - petiole, blade, drip tip, palmate venation, pinnate venation, linear venation, ob- prefixes, opposite, alternate, compound - the class then went outside. Although rain showers were in the area, we could see rain around us, passing to the north, pouring in the south, somehow we remained dry but for some passing mist.
