Dear ecophysiologists,
  I will be teaching a graduate course in plant physiological ecology
starting in March, and I have been trying to obtain syllabi and ideas from
others who have taught a similar course.  I have compiled a list of
potential topics, but it would be nice to know if there is any sort of
core that is common among such courses.  So far, my query on ecolog-l and
plant-ed have gotten me responses only two people other than from people
who want to see my compilation of responses. 
  If you have a syllabus you could email or snail mail to me, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I will be happy to send you my responses if you
like.  Any other ideas would also be helpful - seminal papers, etc.  The
course has no lab, and I hope to develop the course through discussions. 
I will probably use Chabot and Mooney as a resource for the students
because it is so well written, but it is published before the field really
blossomed into lots of new areas.  I am a bryophyte ecologist and
therefore have not kept abreast of all that is happening in the field of
physiological plant ecology. My first decision must be whether to organize
the course around the biomes as Chabot and Mooney have done or around
physiological concepts such as light, temperature, and water availability
responses. Thank you for any suggestions you can offer. 
  If you want to see the compilation of responses, please let me know.  If
there seems to be sufficient interest, I will post them to the net instead
of mailing to individuals.

Janice
