Prior knowledge

Knowledge equivalent to general entry requirements and Science 2 (or Biology 1, Physics 1a, Chemistry 1 or Biology 1, Physics 1b1 + 1b2, Chemistry 1)


The aim of the course is to learn to recognize the most common plants in the wild.

After completing the course the student should be able:

- identify common wild plant species on the basis of their appearance, growth habit and environment.

- identify, for nature conservation, habitats and species worthy of protection.


The course is largely based on excursions, and much of teaching takes place in the field and consists of lectures, demonstrations and exercises in groups or individually.

The course starts with lectures and an overview of plant systematics, appearance, and the most common plant families. The course ends with a mandatory inventory task.

A significant part of the time in field devoted to species identification, but also to the knowledge of genera and families of groups of vascular plants, lichens and mosses and exercises to identify plants using identification literature. Species relevance for the nature conservation are discussed, as well as red-listed species demands on their environment.

Grading criteria

Betygskriterier Floristik BI1287 2022

Betyget på kursen grundas på resultatet från tentamen, individuella övningsuppgifter och redovisningen av inventeringen. Ligger du precis under en betygsgräns (0,5p) kommer det att vara möjligt att förbättra kursbetyget genom en väl utförd gruppvis inventering och redovisning. Däremot går det inte att få sänkt betyg. På tentamen kommer lärandemålet ”identifiera i landskapet vanliga växtarter utifrån deras utseende, växtsätt och miljö” att examineras och på redovisningen av inventeringen kommer lärandemålet ”identifiera för naturvården skyddsvärda arter och miljöer” att examineras. Följande betygskriterier gäller på tentamen:

2: 0-59 % korrekta svar (0-33p)

3: 60-79 % korrekta svar (33,5-44,0p)

4: 80-92 % korrekta svar (44,5-51,5p)
