B 210 Plant Abiotic Stress Responses



In-depth examination of how plants respond to adverse environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures, soil water deficit, soil salinity, high light intensity, UV, ozone, increased atmospheric carbon dioxide, soil nutrient deficiency and metal toxicity. Emphasis will be on the molecular and genetic basis of stress responses as well as the methodology for breeding or bioengineering of stress-tolerant plants.
