BIOL 227 - Plant Systematics


Next Offered: Second Semester 2012
Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4NS
Systematics is the study of organismal diversity. This course provides an introduction to plant diversity and the principles and methods of systematics. Lectures introduce important concepts in systematics, including taxonomy, nomenclature, phylogenetics, speciation, and character evolution. Labs have two major goals: (1) to provide hands-on experience in the modern techniques used to infer evolutionary relationships among plants, including PCR, DNA sequencing, and phylogenetic analysis; and (2) to familiarize students with important groups of plants (particularly flowering plants) through a combination of lab activities and field trips. Two lectures and two labs per week.
