1 DESCRIPTOR TITLE CODE DATE OF APPROVAL SCHOOL Tree Biology MR1016(L4) April 2008 Built & Natural Environment CREDIT VALUE PARTNER INSTITUTION 20 Credits VERSION NUMBER 4 Myerscough College RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER S Co-requisites Prerequisites Excluded Combinations AIMS This module aims to develop thorough knowledge of tree growth and development, tree morphology and anatomy and tree adaptation to a range of environmental conditions. The module will explore the relationship between trees and a range of organisms (eg. mammals, insects, fungi, bacteria) and allow students to apply sound biological knowledge to cultural and management practices. CONTENT 1 Tree Growth & Development 1.1 Primary growth 1.2 Secondary Growth 1.3 Indeterminate and determinate growth patterns 1.4 Sympodial and monopodial growth 1.5 Fixed and free growth 1.6 Reaction growth 1.6 Root growth 1.7 Tree nutrition 2 Tree Form 2.1 Excurrent and Decurrent form 2.2 Monolayer and Multilayer canopies 2.3 Woodland and Open grown trees 2.4 Arboreal root morphology and architecture 3 Tree Anatomy 3.1 Wood anatomy; Ring porous, Diffuse porous, Non-porous 3.2 Leaf anatomy; Sun and Shade leaves 3.3 Branch attachment 4 Ecophysiology of Trees 4.1 Tree adaptation to specific environments 4.2 Tree response to environmental stress

2 5 Whole Tree Concepts 5.1 Tree water relations 5.2 Tree energy concepts 5.3 Tree carbohydrates 6 Interactions With Other Organisms 6.1 Symbiotic relationships 6.2 Compartmentalisation Of Dysfunction In Trees 6.3 Tree defence LEARNING OUTCOMES On successful completion of this module a student will be able to: 1. Describe tree growth processes 2. Distinguish between a range of tree forms and growth patterns 3. Identify principle anatomical features in woody angiosperms and gymnosperms 4. Explain how trees have adapted to survive in specific environments 5. Outline the relationship trees share with a range of organisms 6. Describe how a knowledge of tree biology contributes towards current arboricultural practice. ASSESSMENT METHODS The method of assessment for this module has been designed to test all the learning outcomes. Students must demonstrate successful achievement of these learning outcomes to pass the module. Number of Assessments 1 Form of Assessment Tree strategies and environmental stress. % weighting 50% Size of Assessment/Duration/ Wordcount (indicative only) Students will design a poster (1000 words) with supporting academic essay (2000 words) on the strategies used by trees in specific environments. Category of assessment Coursework 2, 3, 4 Learning Outcomes being assessed 1 End of module exam 50% 2 hour examination Written exam 1, 5, 6 PASS REQUIREMENTS For successful completion of this module, each individual element of assessment must be passed at 40%.

3 APPENDIX CODE: MR1016(L4) TITLE: Tree Biology LOCATION OF STUDY: MYERSCOUGH COLLEGE ; (full-time and on-line distance learning) TUTOR(S) DELIVERY Andrew Hirons Semester Long Semester 1 Semester 2 Semester 3 Year long Semester 1 & 2 Semester 2 & 3 Other (please indicate pattern of delivery) LEARNING PLAN LEARNING, TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY SCHEDULED LEARNING AND TEACHING ACTIVITY Full Time A series of lectures and seminars will provide essential module information. This will be supported by practical exercises, group learning activities and individual project work. Core academic skills will be developed through the use of subject specific literature, student led presentations and guided tasks. These will enable students to understand key concepts and theories, evaluate the appropriateness of different approaches to solving problems and communicate the outcomes clearly using structured arguments. A virtual learning environment will also provide a range of additional lecture notes, relevant literature, self-assessment activities, and links to online resources. The diversity of teaching approaches combined with individual study will ensure all module aims are achieved and a rigorous approach to the acquisition of a range of subject specific, cognitive and transferable skills. Online (single semester) A virtual learning environment provides a platform to distribute a series of documents providing principle subject knowledge. Further reading from a range of sources supplements core information and contributes towards the achievement of all module aims. Self-assessment activities facilitate formative assessment throughout the class and can offer instant feedback on learning. Regular synchronised online events using video conferencing software is used to simulate an authentic classroom experience to students in a distributed environment. Student interaction and debate is encouraged through a subject specific discussion board and individual support is available via and telephone. No of hours Full Time (year long) - Lecture 2 hours per week 60 Online - Online students also have 24 hour access to a wide range of online learning materials and learning activities and are expected to log-in to the virtual learning environment for at least 4 hours per week for a single semester to work through the module learning materials. Module tutor time equivalent to 3 hours per week for one semester is also allocated to support students. TOTAL SCHEDULED LEARNING HOURS 60 60

4 GUIDED INDEPENDENT STUDY Development of independent learning - Students are advised to use this time to develop themselves as independent learners. They will be required to develop a rigorous approach to the acquisition of a broad knowledge base and a range of subject specific skills. Reflection, research and further study - Students should use this time to plan, evaluate and reflect on their learning, undertake further research and private study and engage in the library resources through direct and indirect reading. By developing these skills as independent learners it will allow for graduate skills acquisition and contribute towards future employability. Preparation for assessments - Students should use this time to interpret, prioritise, plan and structure their assessment requirements. They will need to select issues for research, conduct efficient research searches, interpret key information and analyse and proof their own assessments. Students will be required to develop essential skills in time management and self-motivation TOTAL GUIDED INDEPENDENT STUDY HOURS 140 TOTAL STUDENT LEARNING HOURS 200
