Food and Fuel for a Growing Population: Nuts and Bolts of Plant Growth and Production

Covers primary physiological processes from subcellular to whole plant that affect plant growth in a changing environment. Processes include photosynthesis, respiration, water relations, nutrient and carbohydrate allocation, signaling, and stress responses to various biotic and abiotic factors for a range of plant species adapted to different environments. Applications include plant improvement for food and biofuel production, management of plant growth in response to global change. Local field trip planned. Prerequisites: Biology 201L or 202L. One course.
