BIOL 304 - Mechanisms of Plant Adaptation
Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
This course focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms that affect plants’ ability to succeed in natural and agricultural populations. Topics will include central issues of plant physiology such as control of flowering, and nitrogen use, which have implications for agriculture, as well other issues of ecological significance such as natural defenses against plant pathogens, response to stresses such as cold and salinity, and mechanisms of light perception. Creation of transgenic plants for use in agriculture and research will be discussed.
