Welcome to Evolution and Ecology of Plants (EEP3) 2013
The course covers aspects of the origin, evolution and biodiversity of plants, their reproductive and breeding mechanisms, patterns of variation, mechanisms of interspecies competition and allelopathy, symbiosis and niche capture. The course will introduce a comparison of morphological and molecular approaches to the study of the structure and phylogeny of vascular plant groups. Plant/environment interactions feature in the context of the evolution of early land plants, their shaping of and response to changes in atmospheric composition and climate. We hope that the evolution and ecology of plants and fungi - past and present, wild or cultivated - will be seen to be indissolubly linked.
|Student costs:||Notebook and marker pen. Students will be provided with lab coats.|
