Learning objectives
The first aim of the course is to deliver knowledge of algae, fungi and Cormophyta. Cormophyta will be described in depth (plant cell, stems, leaves, roots, reproductive organs, reproductive strategies; systematic botany). The course also aims to provide basic zoological knowledge, illustrating the functions that - despite being common to all animals - are implemented differently by different animals due to varying morphology and environments. The body plans (bauplan) of the most important Phyla will also be described.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should have acquired:
- Basic knowledge to recognize and describe the main plant structures at the levels of cell, tissue and organ, also offering the possibility to valorize plant diversity and promote its conservation.
- Basic knowledge of animal biology needed to study anatomy and physiology of domestic animals and entomology.
