Course Description: This laboratory will allow you to study prepared histological sections of plant parts. The course provides an opportunity to collect native and cultivated plants in the region thereby gaining some knowledge of the local flora while at the same time becoming familiar with the kinds of diagnostic keys that can be used to identify plant material. Additional activities in the form of special problems/projects will also be performed in groups/individually to develop skills in preserving and classifying your own specimens. Laboratory work will be supplemented with field exposure. Course objectives: At the end of this course, the student must be able to: 1. observe the morphological diversity of representatives of Kingdom Plantae, 2. relate the patterns of development with the morphology and anatomy of plants, and 3. understand the taxonomy and various systems of classification applied to members of Kingdom Plantae.

Class Requirements

BOT 111.1 is the laboratory course for plant morphoanatomy and diversity. In order to pass the course, you must obtain 60% of the total course grade. The point distribution is as follows: Bot 111.1 100% (Laboratory) Long exams/Practical 40% exam Final exam 20% Mates evaluation 10% Performance/Quizzes 15% Project 15% 1. During examinations, please bring a blue book. There will be no time limit for the exam. 2. You are required to submit three dried plant specimens as representative samples of the different divisions under Kingdom Plantae. 3. At the end of the semester, you are required to pass a compilation of laboratory exercises. 1. You are expected to attend all laboratory meetings. You will be allowed to make up for missed laboratory activities for valid reasons. 2. You are expected to arrive on time to lab. You will not be allowed to stay and work late because you arrived late. 3. Quizzes which are usually unannounced are given at the first or last 1015 minutes of the class. No make-up quizzes will be given. 4. Come to the lab prepared. Read your lab guide and reference materials before coming to class. 5. Bring all the needed materials for the laboratory (e.g. plant specimens). Failure to bring one will not be allowed to perform the exercise. 6. Laboratory exercises will be performed by group because materials are limited. However, the lab report is individual. 7. You must have your own supplies: dissecting set, drawing materials, towel, gloves, etc. 8. Wear appropriate clothing. Wear your lab gown and closed shoes. 9. Clean up your work station and all lab equipment/materials used. Dispose specimen properly. Return the borrowed materials. Leave your working station clean or even cleaner than you found them. 10.You must take the exam on the scheduled date and time. Special exams
