AbstractFundamentals of morphology, systematic and ecology of algae, fungi and lichens
ObjectiveBasic knowledge in systematics and morphology of algae and fungi and on their significance in ecosystems based on practical examplesl examples
ContentIntroduction into the systematics and ecology of Algae and Fungi. Development and life cycles in the natural and androgenic environment.

The course will provide knowledge on what characteristics common or different between groups are used a) for systematic classification and b) to promote or suppress the organisms depending on the system (agroecosystem, aquatic ecosystems, food production systems, medical systems). Examples from plant pathology, medicine, food production and use, biotechnology and marine/sweet water ecology will be shown to demonstrate the significance of these organisms for humans and ecosystems.
