Classes

    IPS610 - TRANS-DISCIPLINARY COMMUNICATION IN INTEGRATED PLANT AND SOIL SCIENCES; Credits - 1
    A one-credit companion course to IPS 625 specific for graduate students in the Integrated Plant and Soil Sciences program. This course exposes IPSS students to critical skills in publication, grantsmanship, and public presentation. It requires IPSS students to systematically evaluate research presentations from multiple disciplines, present a synthesis of the research topic addressed in IPS 625, and interact with other members of the college and the university on topics related to plant and soil science issues. The course may be repeated twice. Prereq: Graduate student status. .
    Instructors: Mark S. Coyne
    Pls566 - Soil Microbiology; Credits - 3
    .
    Instructors: Mark S. Coyne
    Pls660 - Advanced Soil Biology; Credits - 2
    A critical evaluation of the current research status in selected aspects of soil biology. Prereq: PLS 566 or consent of instructor. .
    Instructors: Mark S. Coyne
