    Ok first things first, and that is to ignore the wikipedian classification system. It follows APG II and that classification methodology used by APG II is crap.


    Introduction to plant taxonomy:
    http://www.geog.ubc.ca/~brian/florae...tTaxonomy.html


    I recommend starting with leaves. A good site is

    http://www.bridgewater.edu/~lhill/leafmorphology.htm
    But the photo's can be hard to see clearly so this is an drawing plate.



    A good glossary reference with everything from growth forms to compositions is here. This is the best all around visual site.

    http://www.vplants.org/plants/glossary/plate_all.html

    *all these sites are simply terminology references, but thats the best place to start.

    Go out and get Plant Systematics: A Phylogenetic Approach.

    That book is amazing. A bit dense, but amazing.
