As I wrap up each of my four plant dissections, I’ll post them indivudally to the class website. These dissections were fun to do, and a good challenge to use the new terms we used in class.
My first dissection was of fireweed (Chamerion angustifolium (L.) Holub. This was the first fireweed that I’ve seen in bloom this year. Knowing there are many more to come, I was OK with harvesting it to dissect for class.
