Study of plant life. Ecology, agronomy, horticulture, forestry, plant
taxonomy, physiology, pathology, plant genetics, hydroponics, algae, etc.
Plant Physiology (Molecular, Cellular, Organismal)
Plant Systematics, Evolution
AGR Agriculture/Agronomy - The application of soil and plant sciences to land
management and crop production. Includes soil management, tillage, crop
rotation, breeding, weed control, and climate related to crop production.
DEV Development - The study of plant life from egg to germination.
ECO Ecology (plant/animal or plant/plant interactions) - The science of the
interactions and relationships between plants and plants and animals within
PHO Photosynthesis - The study of the process by which plants convert water
and carbon dioxide into carbohydrates, using sunlight as the source of energy
with the aid of chlorophyll.
PHY Plant Physiology ( Molecular, Cellular, Organismal) - The study of the
mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of living organisms/plants.
POP Population Genetics - The study of genetic composition of populations in
order to understand the evolutionary forces that select for particular genes.
SYST Plant Systematics and Evolution - Systematic classification of organisms
and the evolutionary relationships among them; taxonomy.
