Paul and Neil Bertrando continue their review about Botany in a Day by Thomas Elpel.
Paul tells us that since the book is about 200 pages, this is a high-level skim of botany. The topic is so vast; it would fill a whole library.
This section starts right in with starting to classify a flowering plant. There is a break down a flower, showing what each part of it and corresponding chart to help you narrow down your plant. There are gobs of drawings in this section, and because of that, this section is particular hard to discuss in a podcast (without visuals).
Paul shares some information about lichens that is in his version of the book, but not in Neil’s newer version. They discuss the club moss family, the many uses of horsetails and ferns.
