Events Details

This advanced plant physiology course is to ensure that students obtain substantive understanding of the physiological processes controlling plant behavior and productivity both at the biochemical as well as molecular levels. Particular emphasis will be on current research into plant nutrition and water relations; plant metabolism including photosynthesis, respiration, carbohydrate metabolism with an emphasis on regulation and the interaction among metabolic pathways; plant growth regulation; hormone metabolism and action.  Group discussion of selected recent publications with reference to the use of plant physiology in improving crop production and horticulture will also be emphasized. The purpose of this activity is to introduce students to critical use of scientific papers published within the various fields of interest.
