Prerequisites
FAKULTA ( FaF )
Knowledge of basic plant anatomy, plant physiology and systematic botany, basic knowledge of methods of phytochemistry and molecular biology. Orientation in microscopic techniques and methods.

Course objectives
The aim of the subject is to focus on the anatomy of the plants, i.e. the internal structures of the individual plant organs, which create a whole plant body. The course develops the basic knowledge of plant anatomy acquired during the undergraduate studies and complements them with more detailed knowledge (e.g. specifics of anatomical structure of plant organs of some families, anomalous anatomical structure of plant organs) suitable for DSP listeners. It also teaches students to work with modern microscopic techniques and procedures that can be used in the study of the internal structure of plant organs (fluorescence and confocal microscopy, histochemical and immunohistochemical methods for the detection of anatomical / cellular structures and metabolites of plants). The content of the course will bring students a methodology suitable for advanced plant analysis.
Learning outcomes
The graduate is able to determine the anatomical structure of any plant organ, interpret it and locate the basic groups of secondary metabolites, even using advanced microscopic techniques.
Syllabus
  • The content of the course is the anatomy of plants, ie the internal structure of individual plant organs, which form one whole plant body. The course develops basic knowledge of plant anatomy acquired during undergraduate study and complements it with more detailed knowledge (eg the specifics of the anatomical structure of plant organs of some families, an anomalous anatomical structure of plant organs). It also introduces students to modern microscopic techniques and procedures used in the study of the internal structure of plant organs (fluorescence and confocal microscopy, histochemical and immunohistochemical procedures in the detection of anatomical / cellular structures and metabolites of plants). structure of vegetative plant organs (root, stem, leaf) and generative organs
    - advanced methods of studying the internal structure of plant organs (fluorescence and confocal microscopy and their modifications)
    - histochemical and immunohistochemical methods for detection of secondary metabolites in situ
    The teaching of the subject is realized in the form of consultations, the emphasis is on self-study and dialogue with the teacher. Teaching includes participation in educational events organized by the Dept. of Natural Drugs.
