Biology of Corn

banner biology

We will introduce several branches of plant biology in this module, including botany, plant physiology, and taxonomy. We illustrate the parts of a corn plant and detail their functions. The description of the essential processes that fuel plant growth leads to an explanation of the developmental stages of corn. Topics include vegetative growth, the transition to reproductive growth, pollination/fertilization, and the stages of grain development. Click on links below to access modules.
