Abstract  

This paper reports on UPLanT’s (University of North Carolina Plant Language Team) vocabulary solutions, including Project OpenKey vocabulary developments.  The paper explores the meaning of vocabulary; discusses plant keys, plant taxonomy, and descriptive vocabulary used for plant identification; introduces UPLanT’s research and development activities and current inquiry.  Vocabulary solutions presented include a suite of vocabulary tools, a preliminary process model with steps for the development of vocabulary tools, and guiding principles for the development of descriptive plant vocabulary.  This work has been conducted to address the student/scientist vocabulary gap and facilitate student access to primary scientific resources found in education digital initiatives.
