Plants = Life

Botany covers all aspects of the life of plants. It includes their structure and development, physiology and biochemistry, genetics, as well as their relationships with the environment and other organisms.

Our research focuses on the evolution, physiology and ecology of plants, algae, fungi, cyanobacteria and virus in a range of anthropogenic and natural contexts.
