BIO 323 Plant Biology
Examine the diversity of plants from a variety of biological perspectives! Understand ecology and evolution by linking plant form to function and understanding the adaptations that influenced success in plants’ transition to life on land. Examine how interactions between plants and their environment or other organisms influence community structure and stability.
