Syllabus

Common characteristics of the Integrated Course unit

Specific characteristics of the Module

Course unit contents: Organisation, biogenesis and functions of:
Cell wall, plasmalemma, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, mitochondria, plastids, vacuol, peroxisomes and glioxisomes.

Characteristics and functions of meristems, plant tissues and organs. Seed germination and plant growth. Plant water uptake and translocation.

Essential elements. Transport of nutrients in plants. Nitrogen assimilation pathway.

Photosynthetic process. Solar energy transduction. Photosynthetic systems C3, C4 and CAM.

Carbohydrates catabolism, plant regulation and stress responses
Respiration. Phytohormones, regulatory mechanisms and stress responses
Practical activities:
Plant tissue microscopy. Seed germination, plant growth systems, chlorophyll content analysis.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The aim of the course is to provide basic knowledge on the structure and main metabolic processes of forestry and agricultural plant species. At the end of the course, students will possess notions on structural, morphological and functional characteristics of higher plants. The acquired knowledge will be necessary for the study of the following years subjects related to plant biology.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Students will be allowed to unload from Moodle the contents of all lessons. They will be also told to refer to the indicated textbook.
