Abstract
The following set of twenty two lecture notes are intended for use by Pacific Islands students wanting to learn the basic information about how plants grow. Understanding these basics is necessary to make the best use of practices which can increase plant production, give protection from pests, and make wise use of natural resources. A strong emphasis is placed on definitions and identification. This knowledge is critical to students who will soon learn that the fields of science have a language, and languages, all their own. Learning the new vocabulary as well as the structure and function of plant parts are the prerequisite steps toward understanding complex botanical processes, scientific theories and laws.
