||MYCOLOGY AND PLANT PATHOLOGY
||Mycology means the study of fungi. In this course we study the biology of fungi with emphasis on their life histories, genetics and evolution, morphology, ecology, classification, reproduction and significance to us. The objective is to learn how to work with fungi and to appreciate both their similarities to other eukaryotes and what makes them so distinctive. Besides mycology, Plant pathology will give an insight to the classification, symptoms and control of fungal diseases. Important diseases of crop plants and fruit trees in Pakistan caused by fungi, e.g. damping off, mildews, rusts, smuts, red rot of sugarcane etc. will also be covered.
