6 Important topics in plant physiology

Important topics in plant physiology

In today’s post, we are going to write on important topics in plant physiology. As a student, you can use these topics to study for exams in order to score more marks. It will also help teachers when teaching plant physiology. In fact, these topics can help in the teaching and learning process.

I write this post specifically for the sake of the assignment given to us. I know it’ll help. Before, I decided to post it on WhatsApp, but I suppose it might be useful to someone in a feature.

From my experience, I think the following topics are the most important topics in plant physiology.

6. Stress physiology.

Under stress physiology, there are subtopics these include:

√ Stomata opening

√ Heat stress and heat shock

Other topics of plant physiology includes:

1. Tropism

2. Nastic movement

3. Circadian rhym

4. Photo-morphogenesis and

5. Photoperiodism.

That’s all about important topics in plant physiology. We will discuss each topic in feature. Thank you.
