 Form (botany) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In botanical nomenclature, a form (forma) is a taxon at a rank below that of variety; it is an infraspecific taxon.
For instance, white-flowered forms of species that usually have coloured flowers can be named a "f.

 botany/brassica
The soil should be fertile and moist to maintain the rapid growth required to form tender bulbs that are free of strings and pith.
In areas further north, where late spring frosts are usual, seeds may be sown in seedbeds made of finely sifted soil in a greenhouse, hotbed, or anywhere the temperature will be 50 degrees at night (minimum) and there is full sun exposure.
This may be done in early April to late May. When the seedlings form their first true leaves, they should be transplanted into flats or pots, or 3 inches apart in a cold frame.

A Rose that's grown in the form of a tree needs much the same treatment in regard to pruning, fertilizing and other care as if it were grown as a bush.
Roses suitable for forming a tall hedge are Penzance Briers, Conrad F. Meyer and Zepherine Drouhin.
Briefly, layering consists of inducing a branch to form roots while still attached to the plant on which it grows, then to cut it off and establish it as a new and separate plant by potting or planting it in good soil.

The Department of Botany's mission is to discover and describe plant life in marine and terrestrial environments, to interpret the evolutionary origin of this diversity, and to understand how humans are affected by and have altered plant diversity on the planet.
The Botany Department is located within easy reach of many other important reference collections in the Washington area, including the National Arboretum, the National Orchid Collection, and the United States Botanic Garden, where large living collections of plant species and horticultural varieties are maintained.
The research, field exploration, training, and conservation components provided by the Botany Department in combination with the horticultural and public display elements at the USBG forms a highly significant botanical consortium in the Washington area and the Nation with joint projects on research, botanical exhibition, and environmental education and conservation for the public.

Whichever track a Botany major pursues (Track A - lab emphasis, Track B - field emphasis, Track C - general), the final assessment of a student's progress in meeting the learning outcomes is via the Botany Student Portfolio.
A Botany major should take Botany 2121 (Career Planning for Botanists) as early as possible as this is the course that introduces students to the Portfolio system.

 Botany 2002 Submission Form for Forum Topics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
BOTANY 2002 represents the annual meeting of five professional societies, including the American Fern Society (AFS), the American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT), the Canadian Botanical Association / L'Association Botanique du Canada (CBA/ABC), and the Phycological Society of America (PSA).
However, there continues to be a reduction in the number of Botany courses taught at the undergraduate level, many Botany Departments and programs have been eliminated nationwide, and the National Research Council no longer recognizes Botany as a valid graduate education program.
It is therefore vital that botanists and their professional societies work to ensure that plants are represented in the undergraduate and graduate curriculum, as well as in science outreach initiatives.

Morphology is the study of the external structure of plant forms, for example, the placement of leaves along a stem, in addition to the development, life histories, and evolutionary relationships of both non-vascular and vascular plant groups.
Morphology differs from plant anatomy, which is the study of the internal structure of a plant, such as cell and tissue arrangement within a leaf.
