Scientfic objectives

The training offered by the ‘Plant Science’ EDT is to do with the functioning of photosynthetic organisms and their interactions with the environment, both biotic and abiotic. The levels of investigation include the molecule, the cell, the tissue, the organ and the entire plant but also the interactions between organisms, whether they are of the same nature (plant population, population) or not (beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms). Alongside the morphology and the physiology (including ecophysiology) of plants, there are now numerous disciplines necessary for the study of rhizospheres (both physico-chemical and microbiological), of bacterial and fungic associations, pathogenic relations, the functioning of the earth, … as long as the interaction with the plant is taken into consideration. The EDT thus identifies via a vertical integration with the disciplines of the study of plant material, and benefits from the experience of a large number of research teams from the university institutions of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and the Walloon Centre for Agricultural Research concerned by this theme.
