Efekty kształcenia:

By the end of this course, students who have successfully completed the requirements will:

-have become familiar with the principles of plant diversity and evolution

-have become familiar with the phylogenetic relationships of various plants

- understand the importance of palynologi-cal studies in different scientific disciplines

- have become familiar with the importance of phylogeography in understanding the history of floras

After the course, students will be able to:

-carry out a minor research project on one of the following: plant diversity, mechanisms of plant speciation, genome evolution, plant reproduction modes and their role in genetic structure of plant populations, plant transformation and the role of modified plants in agronomy and horticulture, on palynology, and on plant phylogeography

- write a short scientific report based on critical analysis of selected scientific papers

- give an oral presentation on selected prob-lem of plant evolution and diversity

- participate in tutorial discussion with critical comments

Pełny opis:

Based on basic level courses at the first degree of studies, the objective of this course is to provide a broad and advanced knowledge of the diversity of plants using an evolutionary perspective. Emphasis is on understanding the modes of speciation and variation in evolution, basic life strategies, and to introduce and practice English.

We will delve into the scientific study of plants in the context of the whole biosphere.

The themes for this course will be revisited each year. Special lectures will be presented by invited visiting professors from different European and other countries.

The course covers fundamentals of general and systematic botany, embryology, tissue culture and biotechnology, biogeography and mechanisms of plant evolution.

1.Growth and differentiation

2.Interactions with the environment

3. Anatomy and modifications of plant organs as adaptation to the environment

4. Influence of polluted environments and climate change on plants

5.Modes of plant reproduction

6.Mechanisms of plant speciation; mode of speciation

7.Experimental botany; plant tissue and organ culture and plant biotechnology

8. Phylogeny and phylogeography
