Aims, contents and method of the course

"The student learns to deal with the following topics: 1) Conceptual framework of co-evolution and related topics 2) Significance of co-evolutionary processes and syndromes in plant evolution 3) Recognition of co-evolutionary patterns across a broad range of plant traits 4) Mutualistic and antagonistic relationships in the evolutionary context. The student gains practical knowledge concerning biological activities of selected secondary plant metabolites, which may be co-evolutionary significance.
