Learning objectives
The course provides knowledge about the interactions between plants and soil components in the rhizosphere environment. The chemical and biological mechanisms that influence the availability of nutrients in the soil and the responses of plants to different environmental conditions are also presented and discussed.
Furthermore, the course provides knowledge on the impact of organic and inorganic pollutants on the soil-plant system with particular attention to the quality and safety of crop production.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will have:
- knowledge of physical, chemical and biological processes that control the rhizosphere environment, in degraded, polluted or fertile soils;
- biochemical and physiological knowledge of soil-plant relationships in the response to inorganic and organic pollutants;
- critical skills regarding environmental protection issues in agro-environmental contexts.
