Course completion:
credit - compulsory participation in seminars (80% attendance)
- 2 tests during seminars (20 points total, 12 points must be obtained)
- final practical test (identification of tissues, organs -80% knowledge to obtain Credit

exam - written exam in 4 areas:
1 / General biological problems (Definition of biology, biological disciplines, Characteristics of living organisms, biological levels of organization, the basic principles of taxonomy, development, grading, classification of plants according to different approaches - Raunkier, DuRietz .., Plant Evolution, Characteristics and reproduction of viruses, prokaryotes, cyanobacteria )
2 / plant cells, plant tissues
3 / Plant organs (root, stem, leaf, flower, fruit)
4 / Physiology of plants (water regime, photosynthesis, respiration, mineral nutrition, phytohormones), genetics - principles of internal memory, the cell nucleus, nuclear division, mitosis, meiosis, basic genetic concepts
Course methods: The course is divided into lectures and seminars, and lectures are usually preceded by exercise. In lectures, the issue theoretically explained, in the exercise students practically and independently (usually with a microscope) will practice issues being discussed in the lectures.
