Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The aim of the subject is to deepen the knowledge about mechanisms of environmental stress effects in plants, mechanisms of tolerance and resistance to stresses leading to plant survival and improvement of yield production.
Course contents:
The discipline offers knowledge on adaptations and acclimations of plants in an environment, mechanisms of plant tolerance to harmful environmental factors and reasons of stresses in plants. It specifies water, temperature, radiation, mineral nutrition, saline, biotic stresses, hypoxy, SO2, CO2, ozone and herbicide effects in plants. Special attention is also paid to molecular background of stress responses in plants and their use in genotypes screening, production of new crop genotypes as well as environmental modelling for plants.
