BIOL 332 - Plant Physiology


Physiology is a branch of biological study that deals with the functions and activities of life, and the physical and chemical phenomena involved in all living things, including plants, animals, and single-celled organisms. Physiology investigates the mechanisms of homeostatic control, communication, and response and adaptation to the environment, etc., at the levels of organisms, organ systems, organs, cells, and molecules. These mechanisms differ considerably among organisms due to differences in structure and environment. Plant Physiology covers principles of laboratory experiments on plant function in the areas of water relations, mineral nutrition, biochemistry and metabolism, and growth and development. This course, BIOL 315 - Animal Physiology BIOL 322 - Principles of Human Physiology , or BIOL 330 - Cell Biology  is required for all biology majors.   

Prerequisite: BIOL 300 - Genetics  and CHEM 131 - Chemical Principles II  with a grade of ‘C’ or higher. Successful completion of at least four semesters of college-level coursework (i.e., junior status) is strongly recommended.
