Systematics, Biodiversity and Evolution of Plants

Our research focuses on the systematics, phylogenetics, and evolution of plants and fungi, especially their adaptation to biotic and abiotic factors. Methods brought to bear on these questions range from light and electron microscopy to molecular cytogenetics, field work, and next generation sequencing of entire genomes to study them comparatively.
