An effective method is to acquire these skills "accidentally", in the process of identifying unfamiliar plants. This exercise uses a vegetative key to woody plants within walking distance of the lab. Before the lab, plants are labeled with alphabetic tags. Students are given a brief introduction, and then they attempt to identify each labeled plant using the key. If their
