Geobotany and Plant Geography are eminently integrative sciences that aim at recognising and studying the relationships between plant communities and the environment they live in. In this course we will focus on the factors (present and historical) that determine the distribution of plants in Earth and also on the methods used to study them. We will also try to understand how plant communities work, paying special attention to the relationships among plants (autoecology) and plant communities (synecology). Finally, we will analyse some of the most relevant plant and algae communities growing in Galicia and the Iberian Peninsula.
