Biodiversity Identification Sheets:
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, developed by the University of Guelph Arboretum, allow the viewer to scan through 53 colourful images in a flash. The images show both front and back of the sheet.
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; one of our volunteers has a 2.5-year-old grandson who can identify all of the insects on the goldenrod sheet and he learned them all while eating at grandpa and grandma's house!
Here are each side of the sheets. More designs coming soon. Thanks to the photographers that donated shots for this project!
Proceeds from the sale of these sheets support the Arboretum programming.
