Plant Form and Function

This introduction to botany covers the basics of plant anatomy and physiology and addresses the fundamentals of the plant kingdom. We will take a microscopic look at roots, stems, leaves, and their component tissues. We will also examine flowers, fruits, and seeds and discuss pollination, fertilization, dispersal, and germination, with an emphasis on the relationship between plant form and function. This Basic Certificate online core course is self-paced, with opportunities for peer discussion, expert access for questions, and field projects. A facilitator will guide you in your learning, review your assignments, and answer your questions. It typically takes at least 12 hours to complete. Download the syllabus. Registration closes on July 18, two months before access ends on September 12.
