VU Plants in Climate Change
VU 3

To learn the physiological response of plants to the environment in the context of climate change, relevant to predicting future species distribution and impacts on crop yields.

The climate majorly influences the distribution and diversity of plant communities, and our climate is changing rapidly. This course focuses specifically on plant fitness, which is the most influential component in the success, or failure, of a species

Methods will include measurements of important plant physiology traits. Plant fitness will be monitored and seed quality will be tested under controlled conditions. Data handling and basic statistical tests will be used

A concise written report

Literature and protocols will be available in OLAT at least 1 week before the course starts

Compulsory modules 7 & 9

This course will be taught in German and English
