Objective of the course:
Plant biology is the fundamental lectures of modern plant study. To provide the
comprehensive and wide knowledge of advanced plant biology, this course contains
following three major themes: (1) Plant vegetative growth; (2) Plant responses to
internal signals; and (3) Plant responses to external signals.
Suggested Textbook:
Plant Physiology and development (2015) Lincoln Taiz et al (eds), Sinauer Associates,
Inc.
