Special Topics in Plant Nutrition National Taiwan University
This course is aim to present the principles of mineral nutrition in the light of current advances. This course will inform you in two parts: nutritional physiology and soil-plant relationships. In Part I, more emphasis have been placed on root-shoot interactions, stress physiology, water relations, and functions of micronutrients. In view of the worldwide increasing interest in plant-soil interactions, Part II has been considerably altered and extended, particularly on the effects of external and internal factors on root growth.
An understanding of the mineral nutrition of plants is of fundamental importance in agriculture. The overall aim of the course is to equip students with a solid foundation in new approaches that integrate crop physiology, molecular biology, and mineral uptake/transport and to answer biological questions in the uptake, distribution, and utilization of mineral nutrition in plants.
*Restrict to 3rd-year and above.
