Public classes
In 1994, the Friends of the Jepson Herbarium began a program to provide educational opportunities for a broad audience of professional and amateur botanists. The Jepson Herbarium's educational program continues to grow as we add additional workshops and classes. The program serves as a liaison between the scientific community and the interested public. We remain dedicated to that role.
A complete listing of our public classes and registration information

University courses taught by members of the Herbaria staff
IB C101: Diversity of Plant and Fungi  Dr. Brent Mishler (with Dr. J. Taylor and Dr. L. Feldman) 
IB 158: Biology and Geomorphology of Tropical Island  Dr. Brent Mishler (with Dr. P. Kirch and others). An intensive field research class in tropical biology and geology meeting every day of the week for a few weeks on campus, then moving to the UC Berkeley Gump Research Station on Moorea in French Polynesia for over two months. 
IB 165: Molecular evolution Dr. Brent Mishler (with Dr. M. Slatkin) 
IB 200A: Principles of Phylogenetics: Systematics   Dr. Brent Mishler (with Dr. D. Lindberg and Dr. K. Will). A general and rigorous introduction to theory and method of building phylogenetic trees, with a laboratory component on numerical methods. The course focuses on general principles in systematics, rather than on specific taxonomic groups. 
IB 200B: Principles of Phylogenetics: Ecology and Evolution   Dr. Brent Mishler (with Dr. D. Lindberg and Dr. D. Ackerly). This course focuses on the use of phylogenies to answer ecological and evolutionary questions (e.g., behavior, development, functional morphology, populational genetics, conservation, biogeogeography, and speciation), with a laboratory component on numerical methods. 
IB 168: Systematics of vascular plants Dr. Bruce Baldwin 
IB 102: Introduction to California Plant Life Dr. Tom Carlson. An introduction to the general biology and morphology of the seed plants in the lab and field. 
Plant Biology 110: Biology of fungi Dr. John Taylor 
IB 261: Botanical nomenclature Dr. J. Strother. Taught at irregular intervals. 
IB 210L: Pteridology Dr. A. Smith.
