Taxonomy of Flowering Plants
for course collecting trips:
501 and 502: Texas, Brazos Co., College
Station; Texas A&M west campus. Then you need to reference
the Norman Borlaug Center as your nearest landmark. Tell how far
you were from it and in which direction--the greenhouses sticking out
the back are oriented along a North-South axis, so you can tell which
way is north. Add any other information you need (proximity to
creek, parking lot, etc.) and consult a campus map if you need
to. Some of you also collected along Joe Routt street--tell how
far you were from the intersection of Joe Routt and another street, and
how far from the actual road you were. We
saw at least 10 collecible plants.
Who is Norman Borlaug? What is he known for? OOOPS! That
street is NOT Joe Routt. It's only Joe Routt on East
Campus. Check the roadside or a campus map for its West Campus
and 504: Texas, Brazos Co.,
A&M Horticulture Farm; entrance on FM 2818, 0.4 mi S. jct. Villa
Maria. Then tell *where* you were out there, using some direction
(N/S/E/W) and distance from some landmark. We saw at least ten collectible plants.
505: First stop: Texas, Brazos Co.,
vacant land NE
jct Associates Road and Harvey Road, SE of Sam's on Hwy 6 access
road. Then tell how far and
in which direction you were from the intersection or the pond or some
other landmark. Monique has a
map in her office, or you can see one here.
(Zoom in--Associates Road is the one
crossed to get to the vacant area.) If you collected right on the E
of Associates Road, as some did, you must indicate that instead. Second stop: Texas, Brazos County; College Station;
Hensel Park, entrance on South College _____ mi. N. jct. University
Drive. You need to go find
how far the entrance is N of University, and you must tell where in the
park you collected. Reference the entrance, the parking lot, or
some other permanent stucture.
