Salinity tolerance: a case study in plant physiology and adaptation.
Course leader: Prof. Mark Tester
Assistant lecturer: Dr. Sónia Negrão
The aim of this course is two-fold:
to present a comprehensive overview of plant responses to salinity and the many adaptations plants have evolved to salinity
to provide an overview of plant physiology and anatomy, this being done in the process of understanding mechanisms of salinity tolerance The course is a graduate level course, and requires a basic understanding of biology and chemistry.
