What you'll learn in this latin class:

Botanical Latin is essential for anyone with a serious interest in identifying plants. But, contrary to popular belief, mastering Latin plant names need not be intimidating or boring. Review the rules of taxonomy, Latin grammar and pronunciation, and learn the history of the binomial system in use today. 

Required Texts:
Stearn's Dictionary of Plant Names for Gardeners, by William T. Stearn

Plant Identification Terminology, an Illustrated Glossary, by James G. Harris and Melinda Wolf Harris will be used during our first class.
