PLPPM 2013

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

Lectures and exams for this course are the same as those in PLPPM 2010. However, students in PLPPM 2013 also participate in a weekly 55-minute discussion section where they grow mushrooms and other fungi in culture, learn about contemporary classification of fungi, see examples of major taxa growing on natural substrates, and determine whether suspect pathogens really can kill agricultural crops. Students also teach their peers about the fungus world with presentations of their own creation. (CALS non-life science majors can receive college physical/life science distribution credits upon completion of this course but they must register for a letter grade. This course is also on the Arts and Sciences list of supplementary science courses and can be used to satisfy Physical and Biological Sciences distribution requirements in AS.)

When Offered Spring.

Permission Note Enrollment limited to: 27 students per section.
