Plant Anatomy webXR Dissections

To support students of Plant Biology 250 at North Carolina State University, VRPlants has developed several virtual ‘dissection’ experiential plant anatomy lessons in a fully web-native 3D format. These modules are meant as an introduction to (or review of) introductory elements of plant anatomy as a student may discern them within a laboratory instruction session- all made available to students within their preferred web browser on a personal or shared device.

All of the modules on this page are available for use under a CCBY 4.0 license and are free for instructors, students, enthusiasts, web developers, and anyone else to re-use, remix, and even redistribute with appropriate attribution.  This work was supported via a DELTA Exploratory grant and with the collaboration of several DELTA collaborators including Cathi Dunnagan, Stephen Waddell, Rich Gurnsey, and Mike Cuales.
