Minor in Plant Science - Plant Ecophysiology (A) PLSC 4002   Plant Ecophysiology (A)
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course is designed to stimulate interest, critical thinking, and investigative processes for the understanding of growth, development, distribution, acclimation, and adaptation of crop plants that are influenced by their physiological ecology; the interaction with the climatological, physical, chemical, and biological environments; and the ecophysiological responses that are modulated by input and crop management factors. This course will also enhance knowledge of crop stress diagnostics, physiological mechanisms of acclimation, and adaptation to various challenging abiotic and biotic stress factors. Agricultural practices and agroecosystem management will be related to the economic and environmental responsibilities. This course will use several “Participatory Learning” techniques.
