Learning objectives
Development of the knowledge framework to understand how plant genome, plant morphology and plant biodiversity and distribution evolve in its interaction with the environment at different time scales, including the interaction with humans at two levels: plant domestication and disruption of wild habitats for non-domesticated species.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, it is expected that the student will have acquired the following knowledges:
· Basic understanding of the concept of plant diversity and how it is linked to different species, populations, morphologies and genomes.
· Basic understanding of how different stresses influence plant diversity and geographical distribution at different time scales.
· Basic understanding of how humans have modified not only the wild plant habitant but how they have modified the plants themselves during the domestication processes.
· Basic understanding of the different methodologies to study plant diversity and how they could be applied for plant conservation and improvement.
