Classes

    Pls210 - THE LIFE PROCESSES OF PLANTS.; Credits - 3
    This course is intended to provide a basic understanding of the natural products and processes that shape the nature of modern plants, and govern their interactions with the environment and characteristics unique to plants, and develop a basic understanding of how these plant attributes relate to oganismic function. Emphasis will be placed on exploring the nature of the major plant biomes of the Earth, their community dynamics, and how member plants compete for space and other resources. Development of optimal plant strategies for reproductive success, plant interaction with other living systems as well as abiotic factors and their defense from predation and attack will also be considered. (Same as BIO 210.) .
    Instructors: Jan A. Smalle C Baskin
    Pls623 - Physiology of Plants II; Credits - 3
    A physiological/biochemical treatment of central topics in modern plant physiology. Topics will include: plant hormones, an introduction to plant biotechnology, senescence and abscission, stress physiology, phytochrome-photomorphogenesis-phototropism nitrogen and sulfur metabolism. Prereq: BIO 430G or equivalent or consent of coordinator. Prereq or concur: BCH 607. (Same as BIO/FOR 623.) .
    Instructors: Jan A. Smalle George Wagner
