It is important to know the the ultrastructure and the chemical properties of the cell to be able to understand this relationship.
The first part of this module covers carbon and mineral nutrition (Unit 1) and the growth and development of plants (Unit 2), while the second part addresses the physiology of the principal animal systems or apparatus (Unit 3) and a comparative study between plant and animal and physiology (Unit 4). Readings are suggested in each unit though the students are encouraged to do further reading.
