Plant physiology B425


Plant physiology is the study of how plants function ranging in complexity from individual cells up to the whole plant. This course will focus on the major physiological processes occurring in plants grown under normal conditions such as: plant-water relationships, plant respiration, photosynthesis, transpiration, and plant nutrition. Moreover, in this course the molecular basis of different physiological processes will be discussed. As relatively immobile organisms, plants must adapt to the prevailing environment and consequently have unique mechanisms to deal with non-ideal growing conditions. Both normal growth and development and those under adverse environmental conditions are major themes in plant physiology research. So, the physiological basis of plant adaptations to adverse growth conditions will be also discussed in this course.
