I am Sugpiaq originally from Kodiak Island. I am married and we have two girls, living in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley on Dena'ina Athabascan land. I am working on OEC of Ethnobotany with hopes of Associates. I am also working toward Occupational Therapy graduate school and eventually a Matrix Repatterning Therapy certification. My hope is to find a way to integrate the two as I progress as a scientist in both Ethnobotany and the medical field.
Hey Treena! This is for the Peer Dichotomous Key review. I appreciate how your key is indented and the … leading to the identified plant. It’s visually appealing. I believe based on your key, the plants are listed as follows:
Your layout worked for me logically once I looked at it for a bit. I think it could be more “dichotomous”, and then maybe a little easier to follow, if each letter was together like a couplet. So like
A. Leaves simple – B
A1. Leaves compound…Plant 3
B. Leaves Glaborous – D
B1. Leaves Pubescent – Plant 4
I could be mistaken in the desired layout though:)
I also liked that you used the leaves and followed them throughout to distinguish between these plants. I was able to use your key to determine the plants.
