Homework #2

iNaturalist is a digital community where people document the organisms they find in nature and try to identify them. You can get help from other people to identify the organisms you find. In this homework you will be using iNaturalist to record plants you find out in nature in Oahu, with the objective of applying what you have learned in botany class in the field.

Steps for submitting homework

1) Download the iNaturalist app in your phone and set up an account. You can also set up an account in your computer in iNaturalist. Use your first name and last name as your user name so I can grade your homework.

2) Once a iNaturalist member, join the BOT 101 Leeward CC Fall 2017- 9am project I created for the class HERE. You can also look for the project by name in the iNaturalist projects search box.

3) Add 10 observations to the project following the instructions below. HERE you can find a detailed guide of how to create observations in iNaturalist using the app in your phone or using your computer.

4) Add 10 observations for the following plants. Be sure to include to which category each of your submissions belong to. For example: If you submit a monocot plant be sure to write down "monocot" on the description so I know this is your monocot submission.
A plant with simple leaves
A plant with pinnate compound leaves
A plant with palmate compound leaves
A plant with simple flowers
A plant with an inflorescence
A monocot plant
An Eudicot plant
A plant with pinnate leaf venation
A plant with palmate venation
A plant with opposite leaves


  • You need to use your own photos of plants found on nature in this amazing island of Oahu. You can go to a hike to find the plants requested. Please do not use plants from Leeward CC campus, LCC gardens, or any other gardens or cultivated plants.
    -Use your own photos. Any attempt to use a photo from internet or other source/person will be considered fraud and will be subject to zero in the homework and failing of the class. Please review the class syllabus for more details on the academic dishonesty policy HERE.

  • Take several photos of each plant, clearly showing the characteristic requested. Submit the best photo, or several photos to each observation to illustrate the requested plant. Out of focus photos, or photos not showing clearly the plant are no useful.
