Learning activities and teaching methods
Individual preparation for exam, Work with multi-media resources (texts, internet, IT technologies), Individual tutoring
  • Preparation for exam - 100 hours per semester
  • Class attendance - 42 hours per semester
  • Semestral paper - 70 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The course is aimed to provide a detail overview about the effect of the environment on physiological processes affecting the production of plants and its quality.
After successful passing the course, students are expected to gain advanced and complex knowledge about the effect of the environment on physiological processes affecting the production of plants and its quality. The acquired knowledge may be employed in other chemistry disciplines and related fields (both in teaching or research/commercial laboratories).
Prerequisites
Knowledge of biology and biochemistry gained during bachelor and master studies.

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam

Knowledge of biology and biochemistry gained during bachelor/master studies.
