SECTION 1



PLANT
IDENTIFICATION
BASIC




The ability to identify a plant is important for several
reasons. From a vegetation management perspective,
it is important to know a plantís identity to determine
if it is a weed and the level of risk it poses to desired
vegetation. Identification is especially important for
early detection of new weeds that have never been
documented in an area before and can be targeted for
eradication. Plant identification is also important for
people who raise livestock and are concerned about their
animals eating toxic plants. In addition, many people
are interested in harvesting edible plants from the wild
or their garden and yard. Knowing what plant you are
about to eat could become a matter of life or death.

HOW TO
IDENTIFY
PLANTS




With so many different kinds of plants out there, telling them apart
can seem like an impossible task. But you don't have to have a degree
in botany to start putting names to the vegetation you come across.

Learning to recognize various species begins with studying the plant's
unique physical features carefully and recording what you see. You can
then call upon other helpful resources, like a plant identification
guide or the expertise of a local wildlife specialist, to make a
positive ID and add to your knowledge of the natural world.
