Plants use intricate systems for growth, development, transport and metabolism to cope with adverse environmental conditions, but also have considerable capacity to adapt genetically to both biotic and abiotic factors. An understanding of the mechanisms that underlie these features is of fundamental importance for all biological disciplines. This is the subject for you if you are interested in plant biology, evolution and biodiversity.

You will gain knowledge and understanding of how plants function at different levels of an organisation, from the molecular to the eco-physiological level. You will gain knowledge of the methodology used in plant biological work and in research into physiological, molecular and cell biological issues. You will learn about the mechanisms that are involved in the evolution of new plant species and the factors that control plant diversity and the distribution of plant species. You will come to understand the way in which mating systems and population structure influence gene flow and genetic diversity in plants. You will study how plants interact with other organisms and their ability to adapt to environmental change. You will be given a scientifically-based perspective to the conservation biology of plants and gain practical experience of ecological methodology. Field trips and laboratory work are integrated parts of many courses in this study programme.... [-]
