Trees for beginners
This course is well structured for beginners and for those interested in knowing the trees around us. I really liked their field assignment, it gives us an idea of how to go about in field to identify trees. I had no background in botany but still I was able to follow up with study material. If you are someone who really want to know about the trees around, this course is a good start. Also, the faculty are really great, fun and respond fast for any queries
