Learning outcomes

Aim of the course is to introduce the students to the knowledge of the different plant responses to modifications in soil conditions with particular emphasis on plant nutrition. After a first introduction on the structural/functional characteristics of soil environment, the effects of nutrient fluctuations, the presence of natural and anthropic (e.g. biostimulants) organic molecules and microorganisms will be described. All these themes will be approached at molecular, biochemical and physiological levels. We intend to give an integrated view of the dynamics taking place at the rhizosphere involving roots cellular activities and associated metabolic modifications.

Program

-The main global problems of agriculture and the related subjects of scientific research.
- Problems and importance of soil in the environmental and productive context.
- Soil formation and horizons (notes).
-The rhizosphere.

-Rocks (notes).
-Structure and properties of soil minerals.
-Structure and properties of clays.
-Other soil minerals (notes).
-Analyses of particle size and soil texture.

-The origin of charges on the surface of solid components.
-Cation and anion exchange capacity.
-Soil pH.
-The soil solution and the concept of nutrient availability
-Movement of nutrient in the soil.
- Membrane transport proteins at the root plasma membrane: structure and functions
-N forms in soil.
-Nitrate and ammonium uptake systems and the role of PM H+-ATPase
-Molecular aspects of nitrate uptake: NRT1, NRT2, NAR e AMT1 genes.
-P forms in soil. Plants responses to P stress. Pht genes.
-Lupin as model plant for the study of P stress.
-S forms in soil. Molecular physiology of sulphate uptake. Sultr genes.
-K forms in soil. Molecular physiology of K+ uptake: AKT e HAK genes.
-Mg and Ca in soil. Biochemical roles of Mg and Ca and molecular physiology of their uptake.
-Fe in soil: reactions and forms. The problem of calcareous soils. Physiological plant responses to Fe stress: strategy I and II. The role of IRT, FRO, H+-ATPase, YS1 and TOM genes.
-Fe and soil humic substances: complexing and interfering actions on acquisition mechanisms.
-Molecular aspects of B, Zn, Mn e Cu uptake systems (notes).

Examination Methods

The exam consists in an oral colloquium both for attending and not-attending students.
The exam is aimed at evaluating the student's knowledge of the whole program of the course paying attention to the depth of acquired knowledge and the ability to systematically connect topics. The mark will be expressed in 30-point scale.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative in ambito D o F comprendono gli insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona o periodi di stage/tirocinio professionale.
Nella scelta delle attività di tipo D, gli studenti dovranno tener presente che in sede di approvazione si terrà conto della coerenza delle loro scelte con il progetto formativo del loro piano di studio e dell'adeguatezza delle motivazioni eventualmente fornite.

Attendance

As stated in point 25 of the Teaching Regulations for the A.Y. 2021/2022, attendance is not mandatory. However, professors may require students to attend lectures for a minimum of hours in order to be able to take the module exam, in which case the methods that will be used to check attendance will be explained at the beginning of the module. 
Please refer to the Crisis Unit's latest updates for the mode of teaching.
