Looking for info on tree and plant classifications

Recommended Posts

As part of PariSarah's 100 species challenge, I am wanting to do some studies with the kids. When I was in middle school, I remember doing a leaf unit study. I collected, identified, classified, etc. I am looking for a site that might have a list of those things used to classify plants and trees. I remember discussing the kind of leafs (lobed, pinnate, etc.), coniferous, deciduous, and much more. I have been googling without great luck.


Anyone have a link to a great site that has plans for studies like this with classification check lists?

Will this work?




It isn't a key, in that it doesn't take you through IDing a particular leaf, but it goes over the aspects of leaves used for ID with terms and examples.


Yes! Thanks so much!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. (out of rep, will catch you later -- much appreciated)
