Milica Obretkovich, a senior from Libertyville studying inter-personal communication and pre-medicine, examines a dissected part of a plant Tuesday in her plant anatomy class in Life Science II. Following lecture the first day, students in plant anatomy go straight into labs. “This is one of the first classes I’ve had where right away you get into things,” Obretkovich said. Renee Lopez-Smith, teacher assistant of the class and a Ph.D. candidate for plant biology, said it is important to introduce students to plant dissection early to allow them to get a feel for it. “It’s all about getting past the initial fear of cutting into things and getting their heads wrapped around plants,” she said. –Pat Sutphin | Daily Egyptian
