BIO 3060 - Plant Biology

Credits: 4
This course will study plant cell tissue and organ structure, vegetative and reproductive growth and development, photosynthesis and respiration, transport and translocation of water and nutrients, plants interaction with other organisms with the goal of better understanding of plants and their application in agricultural, environmental and medicinal researches. The laboratory component will provide an opportunity for students to have hands on experience and observe different parts of plants, study plant physiological parameters and learn classical and modern techniques that are used to assess plant biological and physiological parameters (e.g. using a spectrophotometer to determine plants components). This is a sophomore level course that may also be counted as an upper level biology elective. This course is recommended for Biology, Environmental Science and related majors.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 1027, BIO 1025, or BIO 1028
Corequisite(s): BIO 3060L
3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
Note: This is a sophomore level course that may be taken before BIO 2010, which can be deferred to the junior year. It is counted as an upper level biology elective. This course is recommended for Biology, Environmental Science and related majors.
