Comparative anatomy of flowering plants
Comparative ontogeny (i.e., development of generative organs from bud to fruit) provides numerous informative traits for phylogenetic studies. Material collected in the field from selected tropical flowering plants is available for light microscopic work. Staining techniques can be used to identify different tissues and their development. The results of the anatomical investigations are to be placed in a phylogenetic context. Methodological basics (microtomy, electronic image processing) can be acquired in a preceding practical course if necessary.
