Secondary Metabolits of Bryophytes
Štěpán, Michal ; Soldán, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Skýbová, Jana (referee)
The bryophytes are a very old group of plants that are credited with being the first to make the transition to land. To make this land transition possible, plants needed to develop strategies to combat various external environmental factors. And these means, to effectively combat the struggle on land, are various secondary metabolites. It goes without saying that the development of various protective mechanisms did not end there. In the conditions in which mosses live, they need to fight against various fungi and bacteria. In the fight against these organisms, they also use various secondary metabolites, of course. Moss secondary metabolites are a very interesting and understudied field. In this work, information regarding secondary metabolites of bryophytes and their analysis as well as the possible uses of isolated secondary metabolites are included. The beginnings of secondary metabolite research are covered, from one of the first terpenes isolated, which was marchantin in Marchantia polymorpha, to present-day studies focusing on the discovery of new secondary metabolites directly in selected representatives of bryophytes and, of course, their applicability in human activities. It has been confirmed from various international publications that bryophytes produce specific secondary metabolites...

Critical Thinking of Secondary-school Students in Biology Education
Škodová, Zuzana ; Vojíř, Karel (advisor) ; Skýbová, Jana (referee)
In the 21st century, when we are faced with various fake news, huge media massage and omnipresent pressure, society keeps considering which information is true and which is false. Being able to think critically about various news we hear on television or radio will help us evaluate whether it is true or false. According to Jenkins (2015), critical thinking is not easy, nor is it an intuitive human skill. Therefore, we need to put more emphasis on future teachers to intersperse their lessons with critical thinking methods so that the future generation is prepared and able to distinguish between true and false information. The main aim of this thesis is to find out the level of critical thinking development of students in secondary school. To fulfil this goal, research was conducted at the Secondary Medical School in Turnov. The research sample consisted of twenty pupils in the first year of the medical lyceum during October and November in the school year 2022/2023. Preparations based on the E-U-R method with included professional texts were created for the selected lessons. The multidimensional instrument IMI was used to determine the perception of the lessons from the students' perspective. Based on the conducted research, it was found out that it was very difficult for the students to choose the...
