Virtual Floral Formula - Assoc Prof Geoff Burrows

The 'Virtual Floral Formula' will allow you to improve your skills in recognising the major flower parts, while learning how to prepare floral formulae.

Supermarket Botany - Assoc Prof Geoff Burrows & Dr John Harper

This application is an excellent platform for teaching students about the differences between fruits and vegetables, the differences between roots, stems and leaves and the developmental sequence from flowers to fruits. Many people have published information on Supermarket Botany in different forms over the years. Hopefully we have developed a fresh approach.

Be warned, you will never be able to see fruit and vegies in the same way again!!
