The main course I teach is Plant Systematics (BO 403/503, 4 credits, lab and lectures), which is offered every fall for undergraduate and graduate level students. Teaching a Plant Systematics course is extremely challenging, as systematics is a rapidly developing discipline. Presenting such an enormous body of information in one semester's time is difficult. Another challenge is the range of prior knowledge with which students enter the class. The course has been reorganized to place emphasis on modern techniques of systemic analysis, and recent discoveries, while introducing basic skills and principles to students.
