Plants as Models in Organismal Biology

Listed in: Biology, as BIOL-211

Moodle site: Course (Guest Accessible)

Faculty

Michael E. Hood (Section 01)

Description

In their diverse forms, plants play the role of sustaining life on Earth. Plants are also tractable research models, which have facilitated many scientific discoveries and illustrate different approaches to studying organismal biology. This course will strongly integrate lecture, laboratory and field-based material to address plant biology as a foundational discipline in the life sciences. We will include studies on the structures and adaptations that reflect diverse life histories and ecologies, with experimental exercises and work in natural populations. The course will have two three-hour meetings per week with lectures followed by laboratory or field work.

Requisite: BIOL 181. Limited to 16 students.  Fall semester.  Professor Hood.

If Overenrolled: Priority will be given to more senior students and Biology majors.

Cost: 0 ?
