Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to: understand the origin and diversification of land plants while emphasizing flowering plants; identify and classify emphasizing flowering plants; understand basic evolution processes (speciation, reproductive biology, adaptation, convergence, biogeography); to interpret their phylogenetics (phenetics, cladistics, morphology and molecules).
Learning outcomes
- student uses correct botanical terminology and is able to select concepts and phenomena corresponding to the level of elementary school pupils - student selects and uses the model organisms in the teaching praxis to document the selected concepts and phenomena related to botany of higher plants - student works with plant material and creates didactic subjects for teaching at primary school - student selects appropriate examples to demonstrate human impact on nature with an emphasis on environmental protection
