Covers the basic mechanisms of plant function, from the molecular to the whole-plant level. The unit consists of several modules and covers cell physiology, whole-plant physiology, crop growth and development and crop adaptive responses to environment. These modules examine plant--water relations, photosynthetic performance, respiration and transport processes in terms of their effect on crop yield and performance in field conditions. Fundamental issues in plant physiology are studied in relation to principles of crop improvement and optimisation of crop performance.
