Taxonomy of Flowering Plants
for course collecting trips:
501 and 502: 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 28 collectible plants.
505: Texas, Brazos Co.,
College Station. Use
as a reference point "College Station
Baptist Church, 2555 Texas Ave. S." Then tell *where* you were--in
the lawn W of the church and E of Texas Avenue, in the lawn S of the
church, in the open area E of the church, etc. Alternatively
you may have have collected away from the church, more towards the
corner of Krenek Tap Road and Texas Avenue, in which case you would say,
" X feet or meters in some direction from NE jct. Krenek Tap Road and
Texas Avenue"--and specify your direction and distance...
If you need to, consult a map, Google Earth, or Mapquest.
Remember that these words-- behind, right, left, of off, next to, near,
before, and after--usually have no place on a label.
