    Learning Objectives

    Content Objectives

    • Understand the changing conditions on Earth during the period in which angiosperms evolved and how those conditions selected for features found in this group.
    • Learn the characteristics that distinguish angiosperms from other plant groups
    • Learn the gross anatomy and function of flowers
    • Discover different pollination syndromes

    Skill Objectives

    • Correlate features of angiosperm morphology and life history traits with adaptation to the changing environment
    • Identify components of a flower based on location and describe their functions
    • Identify the most likely pollinator of a flower based on morphology, color, and smell
