BIOU6PE: Plant Ecology & Physiology
CO-ORDINATOR: Dr Mario Vallejo-Marin
Pre-requisites: ABR001 (Study Abroad) & BIOU3EG (Evolution & Genetics) or ENVU3EC (Introduction to Ecology)
This module aims to provide students with a conceptual and practical perspective of the interaction between plants and their environment.
- Problem solving through experimental design and manipulative skills in the laboratory.
- Application of number through data analysis.
- Communication through scientific report writing.
- Information technology skills through retrieval of knowledge from relevant scientific journals.
- Working with others through project and group work.
On completion of this unit students have demonstrated:
- Core knowledge at an advanced and current level of a range of selected topics which introduce important concepts in plant ecology from individuals to ecosystems.
- An ability to obtain and analyse valid data from practical techniques used to study important plant processes.
- Competence in reporting practical work in a style acceptable to research journals in the field.
