BIO 3060 - Plant Biology

Credits: 4
Plant Biology provides a fundamental knowledge of plant classification, plant cells, tissues, and organs’ structure, vegetative and reproductive growth and development, photosynthesis and respiration with the goal of better understanding of plant anatomy and the structure of plants in different environments. This course provides solid information to be further used in agricultural, environmental, and medicinal research. The laboratory component will provide an opportunity for students to use plant identification keys, observe different parts of the plant using optic, dissecting, and confocal microscopes, and measure photosynthesis pigment levels in plants using a spectrophotometer. This course is recommended for Biology, Environmental Science and related majors.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 1025  or BIO 1027  or BIO 1028  
Corequisite(s): BIO 3060L
