Nova Scotia Plants glossary

0.04MB. 0 audio & 0 images. Updated 2019-08-19.


A deck for amateur botanists to help learn terminology for plant identification. It is intended to accompany Nova Scotia Plants, by Marian C. Munro, Ruth E. Newell, and Nicholas M. Hill, using the glossary as the source material. However, it may be more generally useful to amateur botanists, as these terms are common to other published works containing keys for plant identification. The book is available to download freely and redistribute from: https://ojs.library.dal.ca/NSM/pages/view/Plants under the terms of this copyright statement: ©Crown Copyright 2014 Province of Nova Scotia Information in this book has been provided with the intent that it be readily available for research, personal and public non-commercial use and may be reproduced in part or in whole and by any means, without charge or further permission so long as credit is given to the Nova Scotia Museum except where institutions or individuals are credited. A blog article about how this deck was created: https://syn.theti.ca/2015/10/12/learning-nova-scotia-plants-with-anki-flashcards/ There's certainly room for improvement. For example, I'd like to also attach images that clearly illustrate each term, but those are harder to come by and I haven't the skill to make them myself. I would be happy to incorporate improvements if you would like to contribute to improve it.
