We will examine all aspects of Casuarinaceae from structure and function to the ecology of the unique Australian members of this family. Learn how to use keys for identification. Individual parts will be drawn and labelled with botanical terms. During the second half of the workshop, participants will create beautiful drawings inspired by locally available Casuarina or Allocasuarina specimens. 

We will be looking at a wide range of plant parts including flowering structures, stems and leaves.
