CHRIS THOROGOOD

BOTANY FOR ARTISTS 1 - PLANT TAXONOMY AND CLASSIFICATION

This lecture examines the science of naming and organising plants, and how botanical illustration is fundamental to the process. CHRIS THOROGOOD begins with species concepts, then examine how botanists classify plants objectively, looking at major groups such as monocots and eudicots. Chris shares a real life case study of a complex group of plants he works with, looking in detail at the key characters. From this lecture you will be able to answer fundamental questions such as ‘what is a type specimen and why is botanical illustration relevant to it?’; ‘what is a species, genus and family?’ and ‘how do I know which plant is related to which?’, as well as an understanding of which features are important to examine when illustrating plants for taxonomic purposes. CHRIS THOROGOOD Chris lectures plant biology at the University of Oxford, where he holds the position of Deputy Director and Head of Science at Oxford Botanic Garden and Arboretum. His research focusses on the evolution of parasitic and carnivorous plants, conservation of parasitic plants, plant diversity in the Mediterranean Basin and Japan, and the biomimetic applications of plants. Chris is an ambassador for public engagement with plant sciences and is a panellist for BBC Radio 4’s ‘Gardeners’ Question Time’. He is a wildlife artist and botanical illustrator, and an international best-selling author of specialist field guides and popular titles. Chris was awarded the international Irene Manton Prize for the best PhD thesis in botany and plant sciences in the UK, 2009. He is a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London, and the Society of Botanical Artists; he holds an EPA Cephalosporin Research Fellowship from Linacre College. Chris is an Editor for the journal Plants People Planet.
