Botany is a training course basic in the degree of Marine Sciences since it comprises vegetable basic on the organisms, prokaryotic and eukaryotic knowledge as well as fungi and different associations between all of them. It is also intended to prepare the student for the better understanding of the subjects: Marine Botany and Marine Biology, scheduled in the second half of the course and other subsequent courses such as Marine Biotechnology.
