Organisms That Sustain The Earth: Understanding Plants

BIOL201

Description

Plants, as the most prominent primary producers in terrestrial systems due to photosynthesis, are the base source of energy in most ecosystems. This course will introduce students to the factors that influence the growth, distribution and abundance of plants, the influence of plants on energy and nutrient flow, and key features of plant biology. Students will experience the diversity of plants and how major taxa differ in form and function. Case studies will illustrate the role of plants in ecosystem function, human culture, and animal ecology.
