Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding:

At the end of the course the student must be able to know the plant cell and the structural and functional characteristics of the different groups of terrestrial plants; to identify and to describe the main plants of pharmaceutical interest and the drugs obtained from them; to know the main groups of secondary metabolites of plants of pharmaceutical interest.

Applying knowledge and understanding:

At the end of the course, the student must be able to know the organization of the plant cell and the tissues and organs of plants; to grouping herbal drugs according to the active ingredients they contain and their therapeutic activity; to apply the knowledge acquired for the correct use of   phytochemicals in the field of health products.

Making judgements:

At the end of the course, the student must be able to decide independently on the use of herbal drugs and / or active ingredients of plant origin more suitable for different needs.

Communication skills:

At the end of the course the student must be able to communicate clearly and with the appropriate terms from a scientific point of  view, in the field of plant biology, pharmaceutical botany and products containing molecules synthesized by plants and their use for health.

 Learning skills:

At the end of the course the student will have to be able to deal independently with the specific scientific means today available, and to use these means for his scientific updating in the field of plant drugs.

Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Front lessons (Italian) with PC and video-projector (Power Point).

Course books

Claudio Longo, Giovanna Marziani, Biologia delle piante, UTET

Pasqua- Botanica generale e biodiversità vegetale- PICCIN

E. Maugini, L. Maleci Bini, M. mariotti Lippi - Manuale di Botanica Farmaceutica - Piccin

Assessment

Oral examination. To verify the level of preparation of the student, 3 questions will be asked regarding the topics of the course. If the students enrolled on the exam exceed ten units, the exam will be written with three open questions. The evaluation in both cases is expressed in thirtieth and the evaluation will take into account the knowledge of the topics, their exposure, the correct use of the appropriate terminology, the ability to reason and the ability to establish connections between the different topics where possible. After considering the plants of pharmaceutical interest listed in the program, the student will have to bring 5 of his choice for the exam.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
