Plant Study Guide.
Appropriate for secondary school botany instruction, this study guide focuses on the important roles of plants in human lives. Following a rationale for learning the basic skills of a botanist, separate sections discuss the process sunlight undergoes during photosynthesis, the flow of energy in the food chain, alternative plant lifestyles, plant physiology, physical adaptations, sexual and asexual reproduction, seed distribution, and succession. A short glossary is followed by a list of 20 classroom projects, a word search, a crossword puzzle construction exercise, a word about collecting plants, and 15 field trip suggestions. The guide concludes with a 38-item bibliography and a list of 9 organizations to contact for further information. Throughout the guide, drawings illustrate plant classification and identification, processes, and anatomical structures. (LH)
