The Magnoliidae

Note: Family study exercises are designed to acquaint you with the major characters of some important flowering plant families. Follow the guidelines on your instruction sheets. Answer questions and diagram structures ON THE SHEETS and save them to study from. Diagrams, in addition to those requested in the lab instructions, will be useful. For exams, you will be expected to be able to identify structures present in preserved or fresh floral material. Herbarium specimens will be on display during each laboratory period. You should be able to identify these to genus, family, and subclass by recognizing the characters we discuss. For a copy of the overhead presented in lab, click here.
