There is often a wide range of interests and backgrounds among students enrolled in any introductory course (7). This diversity led us to ask: Can a single introductory course satisfy the differing needs of these students?

The study evaluated the effects of the course on students' appreciation of plants, their thought patterns, and their knowledge of plants before and after taking the course.
