Course content
Part A: Body structures and development of Plants 1. Plants tissues, sets of tissues. 2. Anatomy and morphology of plant organs and their function - a root, a stalk, a leaf. 3. Anatomy and morphology of plant organs and their function - a flower. 4. Anatomy and morphology of plant organs and their function - a fruit, a seed. 5. Ontogenesis of a plant body, plant reproduction, life cycles - algae, bryophytes, ferns, seed plants. 6. Metamorphosis as a reflection of adaptation to environment. Part B: Histology and development of Animals 7. Histology: Epithelial and connective tissues of animals 8. Histology: Ligaments, cartilages, bones. Blood, haemolymph, lymph. 9. Histology: Muscular and nervous tissues. 10. Reproduction of animals: asexual reproduction. 11. Sexual reproduction of animals: gametogenesis, and fertilization; determination of sexes and sexual characters. 12. Blastogenesis and gastrulation. 13. Organogenesis. 14. Postembryonic development, aging, fatality.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Demonstration, Laboratory
Learning outcomes
1. Advancement of knowledge on body architecture and ontogeny of plants and animals. 2. Creating and development of skills to work in microscopic lab.
Student acquires knowledge and laboratory skills in the area of body architecture and development of plants and animals that are: a) necessary for continuation of his study in following courses (e.g., Botany, Zoology) b) applicable in sciences education at secondary school.
Prerequisites
no

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam

(1) To know principles of body architecture and ontogeny of plants and animals (2) To be able of effective work in microscopic laboratory and differentiate basic plant and animal structures (e.g. basic types of tissues).
