HORT 102 - Horticulture Plant Science



4.0 Credits
The structure, function, classification, and ecology of vascular plants are explored in this introductory botany course, with an emphasis on cultivated and native plants of the Pacific Northwest.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Identify vascular plant vegetative and reproductive structures (morphology), and explain how they are influenced by genetic inheritance and adaptation.
  2. Describe the relationship between plant morphology and anatomy and physiological processes, such as water and nutrient uptake and transport, photosynthesis, respiration, growth and reproduction, and stress response.
  3. Apply the methods of plant taxonomy and botanical nomenclature through the identification, classification, and description of plants and plant groups, particularly those common to the Pacific Northwest.
