Dr. Samuel Obae took his BIO 210 students outside this week for a lab activity where they collected various leaves for identification. The purpose of the lab was to familiarize students with the external and internal features of a monocot and dicot leaf, so that they will be able to identify the different types of leaves and their phyllotaxy (arrangement) on the stem. This exercise is particularly significant for aspiring botanists, as it provides them with the necessary skills for proper identification of plant specimens.
