PLP 415 Plant Pathology

3 credits
Joint-listed with PLP 515
Biology of diseases and disorders of crop, forest, and ornamental plants, with emphasis on plant-microbe interactions and on disease cause, development, diagnosis, and control. Three 1-hour lectures. (Fall only)
Prereq: EPPN 154 and EPPN 155; or BIOL 250; and PLSC 102; or Permission

PLP 416 Plant Pathology Lab

1 credit
Joint-listed with PLP 516
As a companion course to PLP 415/515 Plant Pathology, this laboratory course increases student knowledge about plant diseases caused by environmental factors and microorganisms. This laboratory course provides hands‐on training in the identification and classification of representative plant diseases, including isolation and culturing techniques for plant pathogenic fungi, bacteria, nematodes and viruses.
Prereq: EPPN 154 and EPPN 155 or BIOL 250 and 255; and PLSC 102; or Permission
Coreq: PLP 415 and PLP 515.

PLP 522 Plant Bacteriology

3 credits
The purpose of this class is to provide current information on the biology of plant associated bacteria, including plant pathogens and beneficial microbes. Topics addressed will include bacterial morphology, taxonomy, genetics, and ecology. Diagnosis, disease management, and the molecular basis of host-pathogen interactions will be presented.
