BIOL 801 (01) - Plant Physiology

Plant Physiology

Credits: 4.0
Term: Fall 2020 - Full Term (08/31/2020 - 12/14/2020)
Class Size:   8  
CRN: 15421
Knowledge about principles of plant physiology is critical to understand how plants work and what happens between planting a seed and picking up a flower or a fruit. This course focuses on fundamentals of plant physiology and metabolism using lecture and laboratory investigations. Lecture topics include: plant-water relations, mineral nutrition, photosynthesis and respiration, plant metabolism, signaling and hormones, growth and development, and plant-environment interactions. Labs will be project-based and students will conduct experiments to explore basic plant processes. Prereq: Knowledge of plant biology and chemistry (introductory plant biol/botany and college level general or organic chemistry); or permission.
