Plant Taxonomy Short Online Course:
The scientific identification of plants, named Plant Taxonomy, is a vital in the agricultural and horticultural industries, plus for anyone completing botany and science courses at college, university or via distance learning. It is highly recommended for EVERYONE working with plants, or learning to work with plants.
Completing this course will enable you to identify crucial differences between one plant cultivar and another and will provide you with the blueprints to systematically and correctly identify plants. Why is this important? It's important because with the level of taxonomic knowledge that you will gain, you will accurately recognise plants quicker and at best, avoid the risk of producing a less successful crop and at worst, avoid unknowingly growing plants with a high level of toxins.
Renowned agriculturists, botanists and horticulturists realise that the ability to correctly identify plants is in decline and is at risk of being lost. This course has been developed to redress this neglected area of working with plants, and to give learners the essentials in understanding plant taxonomy. These essentials will help you throughout your career.
You can complete this course in just 20 hours, that's 2 hours a night for 10 days, or even over a weekend if you need to have your certificate for an interview, on a Monday morning.
