The lab and field trips focus on the identification and natural history of 160 trees, shrub and vine species that are important in Michigan environments, which include riparian and floodplain habitats, glacial lakes, moraines, bogs and a variety of forest types. Broader themes covered in lecture include biogeographic history and the assembly of Michigan plant communities, plant-insect interactions, ecological specialization, and impacts of anthropogenic environmental changes.
