UE Physiology - BIO432 -

Diplômes intégrant cet élément pédagogique :


This course covers both animal and plant physiology, integrating in both disciplines an experimental approach directly linked to the theoretical teaching. In animal physiology, it concerns the study of human physiological functions such as homeostasis, rest and action potential and muscular contraction.) The plant physiology part concerns the mineral and carbon nutrition of plants, as well as the development of Angiosperms and its regulation. The TD sessions consist of application exercises, analysis of experimental results and preparation of the TP sessions.
