Plant Form and Function

This introduction to botany addresses the foundations of plant structure, anatomy, and physiology. You will start by learning about plant classification by vascular system, seed type, and structure features. You will then learn the structure and growth of vegetative organs, the major plant processes for survival, reproductive organs for different types of plants, and different kinds of processes used for plant reproduction. With diagrams, microscopic images, and further resources offered to reinforce the concepts, you will apply the new material through indoor and outdoor assignments and peer forums. This Basic Certificate online core course is self-paced; a facilitator will guide you in your learning, review your assignments, and answer your questions. On average, it takes about 12 hours to complete.
