CSIR NET Unit 6: System Physiology – Plants
Confused with Oxidative phosphorylation,Electron Transport chain,CAM,ATP Synthesis,Photosynthetic Pathways, which are the basics of Plant Physiology ???
Our Lecturers help Students by providing easy tricks to Understand and Recollect these Pathways and Metabolisms.
Ever wondered why you remember the last movie watched than the last Unit studied ? The reason is Multimedia.
- Real-time access: Live learning events require that those who participate align their schedules to the training calendar. Elearning eliminates this because the course can be accessed anytime, anywhere and at your own pace, without worrying to keep pace with an instructor
- Freedom to fail: Let’s face it, real learning requires some failure. But no one likes to fail in a classroom full of other people. Elearning lets you fail without fear. This encourages exploration and testing of ideas. With the right feedback you create a great learning environment. Worst case, you can always start over. Something you can’t always do in class.
- Improved retention: The combination of multimedia and instructional design can produce a very rich learning experience that is repeatable. Throw in some good practice activities with feedback and you have a learning environment that’s going to help your learners retain the course content which will produce results.
- Personalized learning: Look out the window at your parking lot. My guess is that you’ll see a dozen or more different cars. They all do the same thing, yet we have personal opinions about what we want to drive. The same for learning. Today’s Student want control. Elearning allows you to control to the Instructor speed in a way that classroom learning doesn’t.

6. SYSTEM PHYSIOLOGY – PLANT
A. Photosynthesis – Light harvesting complexes; mechanisms of electron
transport; photoprotective mechanisms; CO2 fixation-C3, C4 and CAM pathways.
B. Respiration and photorespiration – Citric acid cycle; plant mitochondrial
electron transport and ATP synthesis; alternate oxidase; photorespiratory
C. Nitrogen metabolism – Nitrate and ammonium assimilation; amino acid
D. Plant hormones – Biosynthesis, storage, breakdown and transport;
physiological effects and mechanisms of action.
E. Sensory photobiology – Structure, function and mechanisms of action of
phytochromes, cryptochromes and phototropins; stomatal movement;
photoperiodism and biological clocks.F. Solute transport and photoassimilate translocation – uptake, transport and
translocation of water, ions, solutes and macromolecules from soil, through cells,
across membranes, through xylem and phloem; transpiration; mechanisms of
loading and unloading of photoassimilates.
G. Secondary metabolites – Biosynthesis of terpenes, phenols and nitrogenous
compounds and their roles.
H. Stress physiology – Responses of plants to biotic (pathogen and insects) and
abiotic (water, temperature and salt) stresses
