Plant Biochemistry, Physiology and Ecology

BMS233

Building from introductory courses in biochemistry and phytochemistry, this course examines both why and how plants produce substances that provide the foundations of human nutrition and plant-based treatments. Discussions integrate the basics of plant physiology, ecology, and biochemistry from the plants’ perspective, with an emphasis on the applicability of this perspective in human, agricultural, and ecological health.
