Fundamentals of metabolism and developmental physiology of plants.
Theoretical knowledge acquired from lectures and textbooks is improved by experiments, the instructions for experiments are applied independently, laboratory device is handled independently, measured values are calculated independently, the correctness of experimental results is assessed, the results obtained are interpreted and compared to theoretical expectations.
L: Theoretical knowledge of metabolism and of the control of development in plant organisms, introduction to genetic engineering.
S: Presentation of experiments, presentation of theoretical fundamentals of experiments.
L: Photosynthesis: Physiology of light and dark reactions, photosynthetic ability and environmental factors.
Ecophysiology: Influence of mineral substances on plant growth, function of light as developmental factor, function of plant hormones as developmental factors.
