Aim of the Course is to provide tools for the comprehension of the basic principles of plant biochemistry and physiology. In particular the effects of environmental conditions on plant biochemical and physiological processes and the plant adaptive responses to the environment will be studied in order to understand the mechanisms involved in crop plant production.
Expected learning outcomes
Knowledge of the mechanisms involved in the regulation of energy and matter transformation in plants. Knowledge of basic biochemical and physiological processes determining crop plant production. Criteria and methods tfor preliminary evaluation of the effects of environmental and stress conditions on plant crop production.
