Environmental Physiology Area of Study for M.S., M.P.S. or Ph.D. in Environmental and Forest BiologyApply
Environmental physiology provides students with advanced training in the nature and control of biological processes.
Current interests include mechanisms of drought tolerance in plants; plant and microbial enzymology; virology; toxicity and disposition of insecticides and environmental toxicants in vertebrates; plant defenses against phytophagous invertebrates; thermal exchange in bird eggs; plant reproductive biology; and genetic improvement of willow and poplar.
