These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
identify the fundamental importance of water, light, hormones and nutrients in plant function
recognise how water, light, hormone and nutrients influence growth and development of the plant
