Plant Biology

The course describes different aspects on plants and how they function in their natural environment, such as the coupling between structure and function, what plants need to survive, how both external and internal factors regulate growth and development, and how plants defend against different forms of stress. Furthermore, plant photosynthesis, general metabolism and nutritional contents are treated, and how mankind has tried to improve these by different forms of breeding. The use of plants as experimental model systems within biology is underscored, and experimental training is given in the form of several laboratory practicals and plant growth experiments.
