‘Plants lose many morphological features when pressed i.e colour, hairiness,  3D…’ (Bell, 2008)

Morphology – the branch of biology dealing with the form and structure of organisms
Venation – patterns of venation are often distinctive
Root Systems – there are two basic types
Adventitious – ‘arriving from outside’
Scars – scars indicate the former position of structures that have fallen off or development in response to injury
