3. Course contents *

This course is composed of two parts: animal physiology (teacher Prof. R. Blust) and plant physiology (teacher Prof. H. Asard). In each course, a number of essential physiological processes are explained and their importance for the overall functioning of the organism is illustrated. For the plant physiology course, this includes water relations, uptake of minerals, function of plant hormones and an introduction to plant stress physiology. Lab courses are taught in a separate course (see Integrated Practicum)
