Slide2ClassificationClassification  Classify :  scientists  organize,  or  classify, things  by  putting  them  in  groups  based  on similar  properties  or  behaviors.  Classify :  scientists  organize,  or  classify, things  by  putting  them  in  groups  based  on similar  properties  or  behaviors.  Classification  helps  scientists  think  about concepts  or  efficiently.  Classification  helps  scientists  think  about concepts  or  efficiently.

Slide3How Leaves  Are  Classified How  Leaves  Are  Classified  Classified  by  the  basic  pattern  on  veins  Classified  by  the  basic  pattern  on  veins  There  are  3  patterns   to  help  classify  leaves:  There  are  3  patterns   to  help  classify  leaves:  Palmate  Palmate  Pinnate  Pinnate  Parallel  Parallel

Slide4Palmate Leaf Palmate  Leaf  Several  veins  extending  from  the  place  where the  leaf  stem  attaches  to  the  leaf.  Several  veins  extending  from  the  place  where the  leaf  stem  attaches  to  the  leaf.

Slide5Pinnate Leaf Pinnate  Leaf  Pinnate  Leaf :  One  large  vein  extending  the length  of  the  leaf  with  smaller  veins  branching off.  Pinnate  Leaf :  One  large  vein  extending  the length  of  the  leaf  with  smaller  veins  branching off.  Pinna   means  feather,  so  pinnate  leaf  resembles a  feather.  Pinna   means  feather,  so  pinnate  leaf  resembles a  feather.

Slide6Parallel Leaf Parallel  Leaf  Parallel :  Many  small  veins  running  the  length of  the  leaf.  Parallel :  Many  small  veins  running  the  length of  the  leaf.  Long,  narrow  leaves,  like  blades  of  grass,  tend to  have  parallel  veins.  Long,  narrow  leaves,  like  blades  of  grass,  tend to  have  parallel  veins.

Slide7Other Ways  to  Classify  Leaves Other  Ways  to  Classify  Leaves  Leaf  shape  (blade)  Leaf  shape  (blade)  Kind  of  edge  (margin)  on  the  leaf  Kind  of  edge  (margin)  on  the  leaf  Kind  of  attachment  to  the  stem  (petiole)  Kind  of  attachment  to  the  stem  (petiole)  Venation:  Palmate,  pinnate,  and  parallel  Venation:  Palmate,  pinnate,  and  parallel
