Biology: Ecology and EvolutionaryBIOE 16 Introduction to Horticulture

Surveys the production of indoor crops and landscape plants to gain a working knowledge of how light, temperature, water, fertilizers, and soilless media interact in a controlled environment. Also covers pest management and propagation. Lectures and demonstrations are combined with activities in the UCSC Greenhouses and at the UCSC Arboretum to give students direct experience with horticulture practices and principles in controlled environments. The approach is to develop practical skills and familiarity with agricultural technology while mastering basic principles in plant biology. Emphasis is placed on indoor growth systems.
