Plants are the world's basic providers, supplying food and oxygen to all other life forms on earth. In addition to food and oxygen, humans derive fibre for clothing and shelter, a wide array of industrial products and thousands of pharmaceuticals from plants both natural and cultivated. Our teaching and research programs focus on the physiology and production of field and horticultural crops as well as the ecology of natural grasslands.
The Department of Plant Sciences provides a truly unique experience to students by offering studies in agronomy, crop science, horticultural science, plant ecology or rangeland studies in one department. We are the only plant sciences department in Canada capable of offering such a diverse experience in plant studies.
