Hello, Daniel, and any other folks who know! I want to educate myself in botany, with particular emphasis on plant identification. I'd love to enroll in the BCU, but don't have the money. I don't want to become an "expert," but I'd like to learn the vocabularies and processes of plant identification. Since I'm pretty much home-bound, I would need computer sources, preferrably without streaming videos. All I have is dial-up, and it's incredibly slow. If you have good recommendations for me, I would surely appreciate having them. I plan to take this in "baby steps," so think of it as recommending - oh, say, for a third-year college level ordinary student. Obviously, I'll take all responsibility for my own learning; I just need to know where to start! I don't want to become either a "clumper" or a "splitter," but I do want to be able to understand the "how" and the "why" when people say that a plant belongs in this group or that. I've learned more here in this forum, in the short time that I've been a member, than in many years spent in nurseries and with other gardeners. You folks have wakened my thirst - now can you please lead me to the water? Many thanks!
