Classes

    Pls104 - PLANTS, SOILS, AND PEOPLE: A SCIENCE PERSPECTIVE. ; Credits - 3
    An introduction to the looming world food crisis and the scientific basis governing our ability to sustainably meet it. The course explores the biological and environmental constraints on food production, the ways that agricultural science has dealt with these in the past and possible ways for the future, as well as societal and cultural issues, such as population growth, human health, education, and food definitions, that also impact food security. Intended for any student interested in these topics..
    Instructors: Tim D. Phillips Elisa DAngelo
    Pls220 - INTRODUCTION TO PLANT IDENTIFICATION. ; Credits - 3
    An introduction to the techniques used for plant identification based on over one hundred plants encountered in everyday life. Lecture, one hour; laboratory, four hours per week..
    Instructors: Tim D. Phillips
    Pls514 - Grass Taxonomy and Identification; Credits - 3
    Overview of the grass family, concentrating on taxonomic issues and identification skills for ~200 species (turf, forages, weeds, etc.). Lecture: two hours; laboratory: two hours per week. Prereq: PLS 220 or permission from instructor. .
    Instructors: Tim D. Phillips
