BIOL 357 - Plant Evolution

Provides an understanding of the diverse groups of vascular plants, which are commonly known as the “higher plants” and are the dominant plants in the world today. Course topics focus on the major groups of extant vascular plants and investigate, from an evolutionary perspective, the morphologies, life cycles, reproductive structures and strategies, identification, classification, and economic importance of these groups. Students lead class critiques of the literature and perform an independent research project as part of the course.
