Course abstract
The aim of study course is to deepening knowledge about relations between cells, tissues and organs. The effect of temperature and light on plants. The role and effect of water on organism. Osmotic and ionic perception. Biological interaction of microorganisms, plants and animals. Immunity, adaptation, yield formation.
Learning outcomes and their assessment
Students obtain knowledge about plant growth and development, physiological processes in plants, effects of internal and environmental factors on plants and yield formation.
Students are able to determine main physiological parameters of plants. Students can assess plant growth and development and affecting and limiting plant ontogenesis factors.
