Syllabus
Prerequisites: Fundamentals of Biology.
WORKERS taking University courses are invited to contact the professor for a specific guideline towards courses and final exams.
Target skills and knowledge: The course will give practical indices and information in order to determine the trees species in the field. At the end of the course, students are able to identify about 200 species of endemic (urban varieties) and introduced trees or large shrubs. These species are very common in all parcs, gardens, urban green areas of Europe.
As complement of general information about trees (our students will asked to become "wood technicians and experts") professor Alan Crivellaro, a plant anatomy specialist, will deserve 8 hours of courses and coordinated laboratory observations of stems of some broad leaf and coniferous species.
Examination methods: Written test, 1 hour.
Assessment criteria: The final test is composed of:
- some questions about the theoretical part of the course (9 points); among them there are some questions about stem anatomy, related to the course of prof. Alan Crivellaro, and corresponding to 1 Credit (= 4 points) +
- 72 trees selected among the trees encountered during the outdoor courses to which students are asked to assign a scientific name (latin) looking at photographs/slides of leaves, flowers, fruits, bark… (3 right names = 1 point, total of 24 points on 30).
9 + 24 = 33 points = 30 and laude.
Course unit contents: 1. Notions of natural evolution and plants history. 2. Basics of plant classification 3. Field trees classification, looking directly to natural individuals in parks and gardens. 4. Identification of trees starting from plant organs as leaves, fruits, branches, barks, other plants details often captured with a camera by the students themselves.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Traditional lessons, power points set in Moodle. Outdoor lessons in Padua gardens and green areas, sometimes by bicycle
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lessons (slides) available on Moodle Platform (https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/)
Office hours every open day, by appointment, upon agreement. Please contact the professor by e-mail: augusto.zanella@unipd.it
