Compétences à acquérir

Objectifs :

This course aims at :

  • understanding the morphology and the architecture of seed plants: the anatomy and the histology of plant organs (stems, leaves, buds, roots, flowers and fruits) and the process of their morphogenesis (from the seed to the plant).
  • describing the diversity of morphological and anatomical adaptations related to the diversity of environnemental conditions and the diversity of dispersal modes

Formal Lectures are based on practical observations from dissected vegetative and reproductive organs and from cross-sections using microscopy, together with the realization of scientific drawings with captions.

Compétences acquises :
At the end of this course the student must be able to:
·Achieve histological preparations (thin cross-sections of specific organs and colorings), and recognize the diversity of morphological and anatomical structures (organs, tissues, cells) and use these characters to distinguish the main lineages of seed plants.
·Return observations as scientific drawings and overall schemes with appropriate captions to understand plant growth and their morphology.
·Understand the organization and implementation of reproductive structures of seed plants (Gymnosperms, Angiosperms: flowers, fruits, seeds).
