Plant Molecular Responses to the Environment
Credit Hours:
4

Molecular and biochemical regulation of plant metabolic pathways activated in response to environmental cues, environmental stress, and interaction with pathogenic and symbiotic organisms. Cell wall formation (primary wall, wood), secondary metabolism (lignin, flavonoids, phenolics), wounding, plant defense (phytoalexins, oxidative burst, hypersensitivity), responses to drought, flooding, salinity, pollutants (heavy metals, ozone).
