If presence is possible a field trip with sampling and consecutive analysis in the laboratory is planned.
Soil organisms (pathogens and symbionts) and their interactions with plants will be presented. A speciel focus will be on arbuscular mycorrhiza, fungal endophytes and soil-borne pathogens such as Fusarium and Gaeumonnomyces. Knowledge of the methodologies will be elaborated with teaching videos, coaching units and group work settings.
- Previous knowledge expected
The course builds on the basic knowledge of crop protection from the bachelor's programme.
- Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)
The students have a basic knowledge on an experimental set up, sampling and assessments AMF and pathogenic soil fungi. They are able to evaluate plant-symbiont-microbe interactions in the rhizosphere based on their own experience.
