Plant pathology, physiology, and weed science

Plant pathology is the study of plant diseases and pathogens and their management. Plant physiology is the study of plant function, growth, and development and plant responses to environmental stresses. Weed science is the study of weed biology, ecology, and management. Virginia Tech's degree and research emphasis is on: plant pathology—the study and management of plant disease, host-pathogen interactions, and plant pathogens (fungi, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes); plant physiology and molecular biology of plants—the study of plant growth and development, plant biotechnology and plant improvement, function and response to environmental stresses, and weed science—the study of weed biology, physiology, ecology, and management.
