Plant Science Posters
This collection of posters are available to download and print out for your classroom. The posters are accompanied either by articles exploring the science (for post-16 students) or with teaching notes and presentations to explore the ideas behind the poster (for 14-16 students)
The poster ‘Plant Pathogens – Identification’ illustrates diagnostic tests that are commonly used to identify plant pathogens in the lab and in the field.
The poster is accompanied by a presentation, which can be used as a step-by-step walkthrough of the ideas in the poster.
