PLSCI 1420

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

This course is an overview of basic plant structure and function. We will survey the basic cell types, tissues and organs that make up the plant body as related to the physiology (functions) of a plant. The goal is to provide a sound foundation in basic plant biology and preparation for higher-level coursework. The laboratory portion of this course is designed to review the material covered in lecture, as well as introduce students to the investigative nature of scientific research. Students will get experience in experimental design, scientific method, and analysis of data collected through experimentation. 

When Offered Spring.

Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will not receive credit for both BIOG 1500 and PLSCI 1420.
