|Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:|
|In this curricular unit the main objective is to acquire knowledge and skills fundamental about animal and plant cells. He should be able to name its constitution as well as all the factors that affect its development. The characteristics of fungi, algae and lichens, as well as their importance at the food, industrial and pathological level will also be addressed.|
It is also intended to alert students to some of the environmental problems and how this will affect the planet, making known changes that will lead to a more sustainable way of life.

|Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:|
|Theoretical component aims the acquisition of general and specific technical scientific knowledge of this syllabus, good level of written communication and a good ability to relate concepts. |
In the practical component the objective is to improve the understanding and deepen the technical and scientific knowledge of the student on specific topics of the program as well as improve the operability, either in the organization/execution of the work or laboratory reasoning.
|Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):|
|Theoretical Component (CT): Presentation, in a descriptive and integrated way, of the concepts, theories and mechanisms underlying the programmatic content and articulated with the bibliography adopted. Approval To CT: Two written tests (average classification of, at least, 10/20; 70% of the final mark of the UC). |
Practical component (PC): Execution and interpretation of laboratory protocols. Observation of permanent preparations, followed by drawings and discussion about its location, constitution and function. CP approval: 2 written tests (corresponding to 80% of the CP mark), reports of practical activities and oral presentation of a group work - 20% of the CP mark. CP weighting of 30% of the final mark. The weighted average of TC and PC can only be made with a minimum mark of 10 points for each component.
