BTNY 4113 - Plant Evolution

Credits: (3)
Typically Taught Spring Semester: Full Sem
The Plant Evolution course focuses on two broad areas: 1) the patterns of evolution of plants from prokaryotes to seed plants and 2) current patterns and processes of evolution among plants.  The first area will involve an examination of the evolutionary patterns of plants, with a focus on land plants, and will include tracing patterns of evolution from prokaryotes to eukaryotes to land plants to vascular plants to seed plants.  This section of the course will explore patterns, evolutionary innovations, and notable taxa throughout the history of plants.  The second area will involve an investigation of the current patterns and processes influencing plant evolution.  This includes variation within and among populations, strategies for reproduction and breeding systems in plants, patterns of selection, speciation, macroevolution, etc.  We will not only discuss these aspects of plant evolution but also delve into modern (and previous) methods for examining patterns and processes of evolution in plants.
