BIOLOGY 110: BOTANY FIELD SITE Penn State Lehigh Valley

It is fall semester, autumn is upon us, and leaves are changing their colors.What a glorious time to walk through a park, wooded path, or your own backyard in order to identify the trees of our state. Herein, everything you need to know in order to identify trees is presented. Additionally, procedures to set up a herbarium using a plant press and dichotomous key are given.

I'll start you off by reviewing the information presented at this site, and then guide you through a tour of the northeastern deciduous forest at Hawk Mountain, with my friend and forest expert, Dr. Keith Bildstein. You will then find yourself a lab partner and begin your project.
