Extractions: Dept. of Biology, James Madison University For the past four years Plant-ed has served the international community of plant biology educators as an electronic forum for exchanging information related to teaching courses on plants. Plant-ed is a BIOSCI Newsgroup currently housed at both the Stanford University Library and the Daresbury Laboratory, Warrington, UK. It was initiated in the fall of 1994 as a prototype Newsgroup available only by e-mail, and in June of 1995, after a favorable vote, it became an full fledged newsgroup distributed by USENET News. Users can subscribe to the e-mail version (see below) or read and post messages through USENET newsreader software, or through the web. The Newsgroup's charter is reproduced below. The types of questions posted to the Newsgroup have been so diverse that a few examples here would not do them justice. On numerous occasions, reading someone else's question has made me realize that I have had the same question but never the need to find the answer. My classes have been improved by simply watching the messages on Plant-ed! Readers of the newsgroup may reply publicly or privately, but public conversations are preferred and can become quite interesting. Every week I am reminded of the thoughtfulness and helpfulness of Plant-ed users both from the public replies and from the compilations of replies sent back to the group. There are truly a lot of kind-hearted soles out there willing to take the time to answer questions. The importance of this feedback cannot be underestimated, especially at smaller institutions where expertise is not often down the hall. Thanks!

Extractions: EVER BEFORE! *SEE NOTE BELOW! A few years ago, I received an email from a young mom who was just starting out in the home schooling experience with a six year old and a couple of preschoolers. She said, "I so much want to have an organized way to teach Creation and spend a great deal of time on it. I want to adequately prepare them for the worldview they will one day encounter." She had written me asking for information about a complete science study that would cover such topics as geology, plants, planets, dinosaurs, microscope usage, and field studies all presented from a creationist viewpoint. I was able to point her to some of the books on these topics written by well-know writers such as Ken Ham and John Morris, but I didn't really have a complete science study to offer. I promised this mom that if I ever found one, I'd contact her.

Extractions: 3. Possible Approaches Return to table of contents 1. CONSIDERATIONS Once you list the resources in your area you can begin to set out the main objective of your camp. The kind of camp you design will depend on the dominant age group in your community and the resources available to you. Themes can be identified for different days of the week and activities can be broadened and developed depending on your specific needs. THEME AREAS WILL GUIDE YOU TOWARD DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES: At this stage of the planning process, all factors come into play: age, resources, number of participants, community support etc. Your initial list of activities will unavoidably depend on the different skills and experience of your staff and volunteers. Outings, visits, as well as guest speakers and lecturers are a good way to break up the week's activities and add variety to your activity list. What is going on in the community? Is there a economic project underway? Is there a housing development taking place? Special projects done by local businesses can turn an afternoon camp visit into a full day outing or even a weekly theme. Keeping up to date on community activities will help expand and enrich your activity list.

University Of Michigan Herbarium through these appointments they teach undergraduate and Research activities are centeredon evolutionary studies Systematic botany pertains also to such fields http://herbarium.lsa.umich.edu/website/aboutus.html
Extractions: he University of Michigan Herbarium was established in 1921 to bring together various botanical collections that had been developed almost from the time of the University's founding in Ann Arbor in 1837. From a start of some 27,000 cryptogams and 43,000 phanerogams, the Herbarium's collections have grown to include over 1.6 million specimens. The Herbarium is ranked eighth in the U.S. in total holdings, fourth in algae, fifth in fungi, ninth in lichens, third in bryophytes, and ninth in vascular plants. The American Society of Plant Taxonomists has designated the Herbarium a National Resource Collection and, in view of the quantity and quality of the physical resources and the size and professional activities of the staff, has ranked it among the top three herbaria in the country. The Herbarium, a unit of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, Facilities Herbarium faculty also use the facilities of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the Matthaei Botanical Gardens in their research and teaching activities. Collections at the Herbarium include significant holdings of all major plant groups. Specimens represent floral communities all over the world, but some geographical areas are more thoroughly represented than others. Curatorial standards are exceptionally high; a 1980 external review committee reported that the collections may well be the most carefully curated in the country. The approximate sizes of the various collections are as follows:

Pizza Computer Jokes Aim The Pizza Garden project will provide resources and activities to teach basic plant biology, basic environmental science, human nutrition, cooking and explore the cultural construction of growing and eating food for students in the 3rd grade. Rationale City (and suburban) children are typically alienated from the source of the food they eat. The gardening activities are intended to involve students in the cultivation of edible plants. This experience will be enriched by a group of web-based lessons that will give students an understanding of the way plants function, as well as, the history of the plants they might grow in a pizza garden, their biology, their environmental needs and their culinary applications. prerequisites The Pizza Garden is geared to begin at the 3rd grade, but it is a module that can easily be expanded to cover higher grades as well as intergenerational groups. It is necessary that the participants can read on the third-grade level and are able to use a mouse and keyboard to navigate through a website.
