  1. Great job Louise!
    I love your dissections and the trick you are using with keeping all your floral parts organized on the tape. Well done, these turned out very nice. If you get a chance in the future try to make some dissections of the ovary in cross section and longitudinal section, it is interesting to see what placentation you will find, as certain families have characteristic placentation. Hulten does not use placentation much in his keys, but other floras do.
