As one of the staff members in charge of the teaching laboratory, I plan, set up and prepare the practical exercises that are part of the plant biology courses offered at the IRBV and the Université de Montréal Biodiversity Centre. These responsibilities are carried out in collaboration with the professors and teaching assistants for each course.
