Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Organisms live interacting directly and indirectly with enormous kinds of factors exist in nature. In this lecture, chemical and biological factors that influence plant growth and presence will be introduced, where special emphasis will be put on the influences of external and internal environments, and mechanisms of the interactions. The goal of this class is to understand the complexity and interactions of plant growth environments.     
Class Schedule lesson1   (Kuga・Wasaki・Nakagawa・Katsuyama)
Guidance
lesson2 ~ 8   (Wasaki・Nakagawa)
Overviews of relationships between plants and environments mainly from the chemical aspects, where the latest studies of stress environments such as nutrients, toxic elements, acid soil will be exampled.
lesson9 ~ 15 (Kuga・Katsuyama)
Overviews of the symbiotic relationships between plants and microbes. The definitions and examples of the symbioses (e.g. mutualism (mycorrhizas), parasitism (soil born disease)), biological networks, environmental factors influencing the relationships, etc. will be introduced with the latest knowledge.
