Plant physiology is a subdiscipline of botany concerned with the functioning, or physiology, of plants.

Fundamental processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, plant nutrition, plant hormone functions, tropisms, nastic movements, photoperiodism, photomorphogenesis, circadian rhythms, environmental stress physiology, seed germination, dormancy and stomata function and transpiration, both parts of plant water relations, are studied by plant physiologists.Mammalian physiology emphasizes on fundamental homeostatic processes of mammalian organ systems. The course is intended for highlymotivated students interested in graduate health- or biological science-related professions.
