BO 3.4 d is the special Plant Ecology course for M.Sc. Botany students. It consists of 3 credits which cover Behavioral ecology, natural resources management and Conservation Ecology. The course describes the plants interactions with other organisms which include plants themselves too. In this various types of nutrition are described. Based on the nutrition plants can be divided accordingly. The invasive species are highlighted. The important natural resources such as forest and water with their management are described. In the conservation different strategies are given and legal issues related with the conservation are discussed.
BO 4.2 d is the Plant Ecology specialization course in the 4th semester of M.Sc. Botany. This course consists of 3 credits. First credit is discussing the communication of plants with the microbes. The second credit corresponds with mechanisms of bioremediation. The mechanism involves the metabolism of plants and microbes associated with the utilization of contaminants. The third credit is pertaining to sustainable development. In this account of the sustainable agriculture, wetlands and cities is given.
