Environmental Plant Physiology

The Environmental Instrumentation course (PSC 5000/6000) teaches the physics of signal transduction, how sensors convert an environmental parameter into an electric signal, the basic electronics needed to connect sensors with dataloggers, data collection and processing, and programming dataloggers to measure sensors.
