Wild Flowers (plant taxonomy) is the study of flowering plants and some of their nonflowering relatives such as ferns and conifers. Close attention is paid to reproductive structures, identification, classification, phylogenetic relationships, and plant habitats.
Wild Flowers is a field-oriented course and students must participate in a nine-day workshop held in June/July at the Kananaskis Field Station at Barrier Lake (70 km west of Calgary). Students are responsible for paying their own board and lodging (approximately $350) in addition to course tuition. Students must register in time for a June 1 start date. The course ends August 31 and students will have no option to extend. More information is listed in the workshop details.
