In Summer, 2020 the OSU Ohio Plants course was entirely online (taught remotely). The instructors put together video versions of the lectures that were traditionally done in-person and placed them on YouTube. This page is an aggregation of those lectures.

What is a plant?

The types of plants (phyla).

The three life cycles and why plants are the best (they do it all)!

Moss is boss!

Let’s go out and look at a moss.

Ferns are frondly enough. Let’s learn about them.

Let’s go out and lookey-lookey at a fern.

Again, see if you can’t find some ferns outside your own backdoor. Then, return for the last bit of lecture, finishing strong with the flowering plants:

Field trip!!

Go find some flowers near you, and use your Newcomb’s guide to practice identifying them.
