Plant-Environment Signaling

The Plant-Environment Signaling group, previously known as Plant Ecophysiology, studies the complex interactions between plants and their environment. We focus on molecular and physiological signalling mechanisms that enable plants to grow and develop, while dealing with their dynamic environment. We study how plants develop, how plants can be resilient against abiotic stress, and how they process light cues associated with high planting density. Our work provides a scientific basis for development of future-proof crops.
