The USA-NPN’s Botany Primer is an educational resource designed to help observers make reliable plant observations for submission to the Nature’s Notebook citizen and professional science program. It covers basic botany, phenology vocabulary and the USA-NPN’s plant phenophases. It is also very appropriate for those interested in simply learning more about botanical terms and concepts, separate from participation in Nature's Notebook.
