About the Course

The course covers the physiology of plants (land and marine) and their close relatives (cyanobacteria and algae) from the cellular level to the organism level. The focus is on how the environment affects basic physiological processes such as photosynthesis, nutrient uptake and metabolism, reproduction, aging, and programmed cell death. How plants respond to biotic (pathogen and herbivore attack) and abiotic stresses (nutrient limitation, salinity, cold, heat, excess light, high CO2) and related adjustments are included. Laboratory work examines how plants, algae and cyanobacteria respond to various stress factors. The course is highly interactive. In addition to lectures and laboratory work, you will be asked to present selected relevant research articles. Project work / studies in a relevant topic chosen by you and presented for fellow students are also included in the course.
