Integrative Plant Genomics, Physiology and Ecology

Our research is focused on improving mechanistic understanding of:

  1. Plant responses in natural and agricultural ecosystems to global environmental change
  2. Adaptation of food and fuel crops to global environmental change
  3. Sustainability of biofuel feedstocks

This will enhance understanding of how the environment impacts ecosystem goods and services including biodiversity, productivity, water cycling and food supply. To do this we combine genetic, molecular, biochemical, physiological and ecological tools to assess plant performance in manipulative field experiments and controlled environment chambers.

Currently most of our research is done at:
