BOT 3710 - Plant Diversity and Evolution W (3-3) [0.50]

This course integrates mostly fundamental and applied aspects of plant evolution, focusing on the evolutionary history of plants, classification and identification, and hypotheses related to the evolution of plant form and life history. Specific topics include evolutionary process in plants and evolution of physiological, reproductive, behavioural, and morphological traits. Labs will focus on methods and contemporary tools for phylogenetic reconstruction, comparative analyses, identification, and basic morphology/anatomy.

Comment :
Awful course. Avoid taking it if you can. The lecture and lab did not compliment each other. Caruso is very disorganized, and not overly helpful.

Theres no exam which is nice. The papers aren't too bad to write either which is the bulk of the mark. What I didn't like was that the lab section wasn't tied into the lecture section. Pretty much two mini classes, plant evolution is lecture and plant diversity (identification) is lab.

Horrible. Had to drop the course because the prof was so disorganised. Caruso failed to outline her requirements for paper prior to due date.
