Plant Anatomy and Morphogenesis

Fundamental concepts of plant anatomy and morphogenesis. The relationships between tissue and organ structures and their functions. This course is composed of 3 h of theory and 3 h of practicals (4 credits).

Aims of this course:

  1. Detailed introduction of plant structure at the level of cells, tissues, and organs;
  2. Introduce the relationship between plant structure and its functions;
  3. Understanding structural changes related to plant growth and development;
