ENTM 7002- Plant Resistance to Arthropods
Prereq.: consent of instructor. 3 hrs. lecture; 3 hrs. lab. Detailed examination of the mechanistic basis of plant-insect interactions, with special reference to host-plant resistance in agricultural systems; integrates relevant concepts from diverse fields including insect physiology, plant physiology, plant biochemistry and ecology; evaluation of the current theoretical basis for research in plant-insect interactions; laboratory demonstrations and exercises emphasize the techniques used in host-plant resistance research.
