Course objectives
The course presents an overview of plants, algae, fungi and similar organisms, based on recently accepted classification. The students are introduced into their phylogenetic relations, important groups and their representatives.
Learning outcomes
At the end of this course (in the case of successful finishing) students should be able to:
list and characterize the main groups of "lower plants" as well as "higher plants" (organisms historically classified among the plants);
explain endosymbiotic origin of the semiautonomous organelles, survey of the divisions of the algae, fungi and "fungi-like" organisms to the level of classes and orders;
survey particular divisions from Bryophyta to Magnoliophyta (Angiospermae), the most important orders and families of the angiosperms;
explain basics of morphology, classification of the vascular plants, basic mechanisms of the plant evolution;
discuss diversity of taxa with special remarks to the flora of Central Europe.
