Always wanted to know more about the natural world?
Take a look at what's included in this online "Botany Diploma Course" - all this for just 19€!
You’ll become familiar with gross and microscopic plant anatomy, plant physiology, the family or genera plants belong to, how they are taxonomically organised, and their metabolic processes. You’ll even follow their evolution from water to land and discover how they’ve adapted to their differing environments.
The Botany Diploma Course begins by looking at plant evolution and adaptation, a process that will introduce you to some of the most exciting plant species, including carnivorous plants (which might live closer to you than you think!).
From there, we’ll dive right into the plants, as we consider them on a microscopic level. You’ll discover the different cells that make up various plant tissue types, becoming familiar with the process of plant growth.
You'll learn about the gross anatomy of plants, looking at the plant parts that we can see with the naked eye. You discover facts about the foods you eat and think more deeply about how humans use each different plant part. We’ll also explore plant physiology, as we take a closer look at processes such as photosynthesis and respiration and how water and sugars move through plants.
The Botany Diploma Course shows you the systems of classifications used to organise the gigantic plant kingdom. We explore Kingdom Protista and lichen and learn about fungi — which includes a look at what mushrooms are and edible, poisonous and psychotropic fungi. You’ll also discover some of our earliest land plants as you study bryophytes and ferns.
You’ll be introduced to gymnosperms — helping you learn more about conifers. You’ll also explore how they reproduce and how humans have come to rely on them for more than just wood.
The course concludes in an explosion of colour, scent and ingenious pollination adaptations, as you explore angiosperms — flowering plants.
