You will need
- - a sample of a flower or flowering plant, the name of which you want to learn;
- - a school Atlas of higher plants (Moscow, Prosveschenie, 1985 and 1991).
Take a school Atlas-a determinant of higher plants, designed for children, and therefore simple and easy to use. If the scientific classification of the plants you are aware of the bad and to understand her system, you have no time, search for flower by name, you can simplify to the limit because of this informational publication. To solve our task will probably be two simple ways.
Flip through a reference book and you will see that he is supplied with numerous illustrations - drawings of plants. Find one or more morphological characteristics of the flower his family is quite simple. But even if you do not do this, you can quickly find the flower (in the illustrations, almost all plants are presented on the flowering stage). Flipping through the Handbook, you will see that the figures highlighted the characteristics of each flower and learn its very easy.
Use the second way to find the name of a flower - look in the alphabetical index of names at the end of the book. If any of the assumptions on which flower you found while walking, you have, you can easily check the correctness of these guesses. Find the expected name in the alphabetical list and click the appropriate page - before you will be a detailed description and drawing in which the flower is depicted.
Try to start from the desired similarity of the flower with its closest "relatives", if you just find it among other plants is not possible. If it resembles a cornflower, look in the family Asteraceae, to which cornflower applies and, therefore, most likely, is the flower that you are looking for. The definition of plants requires some skill, which quickly generated and if you from time to time will be looking at names of plants, then gradually to determine the next flower you will become easier and easier.
Try to disrupt not only the flower, but will also bring samples of leaves, and even better root - this can greatly facilitate the process of "recognition" of the plant.
