BI 330 Applied Plant Science 4 cr.  (3-0-3)

Plant growth and development, ecophysiology, and crop production with a focus on methods for influencing plant growth for desired properties will be emphasized. Positive and negative biotic/abiotic interactions of plants will be explored within the context of how these interactions influence the biology of plants. A survey of the diversity of plants with a focus on key groups and the biology of fungi and algae will also be discussed in addition to new technologies for optimizing plant growth and commercialization.
