Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
LO - 1 : They will be understand the morphological differences of seedless plants.1,2,3,44,
LO - 2 : Will acquire skills in analysis of a water sample containing various microorganisms in the laboratory.1,2,3,44,
LO - 3 : The specimens studied in the laboratory will improve their drawing skills.1,2,3,44,
LO - 4 : the identification key, having learned that they did not know the name of a plant will have gained the ability to reach detailed information about plant1,2,3,44,
