BIOL - 310. Plant Physiology

(3 hours lecture, 4 hours laboratory)
4 credit(s)
The structural, biochemical, and cellular strategies that plants use to grow and develop will be explored. Topics will include photosynthesis and metabolism, control of water uptake, vascular systems, hormone signaling, environmental perception (light, gravity, day length, etc.), and responses to environmental stress. Where possible, we will compare and contrast physiological and cellular processes in plants with equivalent ones found in animals. The laboratory corresponds closely with lecture, provides hands-on training in many modern physiological and cellular techniques, and includes a multi-week independent study project. There is typically a field trip to the New York Botanical Garden at the end of the semester. Lab fee.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 220 . Prior completion of BIOL 190  recommended.
Attribute: (ATTR: ARTS, PHYL)
