Annotation -
Through experiments, we would get an insight into plant behaviour and measure differences in adaptations to environmental conditions. We hope to investigate both autecological phenomena and behaviour in interaction with other organisms. Experiments will be conducted to get real scientific, not just toy data. Each problem will be introduced by short lecture and discussion of current state of the art.

Course materials are available at the moodle site of the course.

Literature -

Depends on the selected problems and varies on a yearly basis, but Larcher, W. : Physiological plant ecology (various editions) might come handy.
