In this part of the course the student will be enabled to use previous knowledges acquired in the part of the course on cell biology, in order to understand structure-function relationships in tissue differentiation and in organ development:

Vegetative and sexual reproduction, and their evolutive role. Life cycles and their evolution.
Primary and secondary growth, tissues and organs.
Anatomy, growth and differentiation of root, shoot and leaves, and structure-function relationships
