Exploring Land Plant Evolution, Coal Balls and Insectivorous Plants in a Class.

This workshop will try to put plant evolution into perspective. I will start with the early Devonian (~400 MYA) land plants and show numerous examples of fossils which exemplify the tremendous diversity of this kingdom. Particular attention will be paid to the Carboniferous Period (~ 350 MYA) and participants will make their own coal ball peel to take home. Each participant will receive a CD copy of my PowerPoint presentation on land plant evolution, two booklets I made to help identify Carboniferous coal ball peel plants, as well as a set of labs I use with Venus Flytraps. I will have some coal balls (about 15) to give out to interested participants as well.
