CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course is an advanced study of the interactions between plants and microorganisms, with emphasis on plant pathogenic micro-organisms but including symbiotic and other microorganisms that can provide a benefit to the plant. Students will study the histology of the infection process in relation to plant disease and symbiosis, and the impact that infection has on the physiology of the host. Responses of the plant to infection will be studied, with emphasis on Systemic Acquired Resistance and Induced Systemic Resistance.
