Abstract Detail

High Speed Botany

Kariyat, Rupesh [1].

Teaching Module on Plant Biochemical Interactions with Insects.

The widespread misperception of plants as passive organisms— providing the backdrop against which the more active members of the animal kingdom play out the drama of life—presents both a challenge and an opportunity for integrating plant science into classrooms. And, the opportunity is that understanding plant community interactions can provide students a window onto the hidden complexity of the living world. Here, using ecological knowledge derived from chemical ecology and molecular genetics, we present a hands-on teaching module that illustrates plants’ defenses at work against insect herbivores with bioassays that can be accomplished without any specialized laboratory equipment.
