Plant Physiology

PLT-3350 (3.00 credits)

A study of the underlying physiological mechanisms involved in crop responses at different stages of plant development. Dormancy, germination, vegetative development, reproduction and senescence are related to plant hormones and biochemical changes at the cellular level. Physiological responses to abiotic and biotic stresses such as water, temperature, salinity, nutrients, diseases and pests are also explained.
