Welcome

We are interested in plants and water. Water is the molecule of life and it fuels plant growth. We study how plants take up water, and how they transport it in their vascular tissue. We also study how plants cope with stress factors such as drought, frost and insect defoliation. Click on the Publications tab if you like to learn more.

Two MSc positions are available with start dates of January or May 2020. The first one is on Global Change Biology, see here. The 2nd MSc position is on Plant Ecophysiology with a focus on vascular transport, see here.
