ENV 551 Plant Ecology

Prerequisites: ENV 501 and ENV 502, or permission of the instructor. This course is available as an elective for the GIS-ENV Certificate. It is the student’s responsibility to inform the instructor that this course will count toward the GIS-ENV Certificate by the drop/add deadline each semester, so that GIS-focused assessments can be completed. Once a student declares the GIS option, the course cannot revert to the non-GIS version. Analyzes how environmental fluctuations impact plant populations, along with current problems in plant ecology. Topics include the vital processes of plants, the effects of environmental factors on their metabolism and energy transformations and their ability to adapt to these factors.
