Botany

This course presents the basics of plant biology. We will begin with plant anatomy, learning the names and functions of all of the parts of a plant, then move on to plant physiology, which discusses photosynthesis, growth, and reproduction. Next, we will study plant evolution according to the fossil record, examining the diversity of plant life in existence today and how that diversity impacts global ecology. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Biology 306)
