Observations and Identification

In preparation for our field work on invasive species, we are working on how to make good observations. Students are studying leaf specimens which they will later attempt to identify using the following sites:

  1. LEAF Tree ID Key- http://www4.uwsp.edu/cnr/leaf/Treekey/tkframe.htm
  2. EEKS- Dichotomous Tree Key- http://dnr.wi.gov/org/caer/ce/eek/veg/treekey/index.htm
  3. Plant Dichotomous Key- http://www.bio.brandeis.edu/fieldbio/Sylvain/key.html
  4. Invasive Plant Dichotomous Key- http://mapserver.harc.edu/website/dikey/
