Biodiversity Sheet - Tree Buds


Sometimes it is easier to identify animals and plants if you can see a lot of images at once instead of looking through a book. These double-sided, 11 X 17 inch, laminated sheets allow the viewer to scan through 53 colourful images in a flash. We have field tested most of these on all ages, from preschool to retirees, with great results - everyone loves them! Some are organised to cover specific habitats and some concentrate on specific groups of organisms. The sheets also make great placemats.

Believe it or not, some trees are easier to identify in the winter when they don't have leaves!  By using buds, bud scars and twig characteristics, you can identify deciduous trees when out and about in our coldest season.
