Learning Outcomes of UE

The lecture of " Botanical Elements " aims to teach students to the main groups of plants: Bryophyta, Pteridophyta and Spermatophyta. They will learn their anatomy, their important tissues and their reproduction cycle. We will focus on the flowering plant (Angiosperm) for which we will study the flower morphology, the ovule, the fruits, the seeds, the pollination syndrome and dissemination. At the end of the practical and the theoretical lectures, students will be able to describe and recognize the common Belgian plants, their anatomy, their reproduction, their evolution and their ecology.
