BIOL 4422 Plant Biology (Spring: 3 )
This course focuses on the critical importance of plants on Earth and how their physiology (cell structure, photosynthetic ability, flowering, specialized structures allowing water and nutrient absorption and transport, defense strategies against predators, etc.) allows them to perform their diverse functions. Additional topics will include strategies that plants employ for adapting to environmental stresses, such as pollutants and changing climate, as well as the development of transgenic strains of crop plants.
