The members of the Plant Biology group study the form, function, evolution, and ecology of higher plants. Research interests include the molecular biology of development, the biochemistry and physiology of growth , physiological ecology, and population, community, and landscape ecology. Interest in higher plants unifies the group and generates extensive and productive interactions among faculty and students.
Graduate seminar courses are offered each year by members of the group. These seminars explore advanced and emerging topics in various fields of plant biology and help students understand design of experiments and interpretation of results.
Graduate and undergraduate students interested in studying these topics are encouraged to contact the faculty members below to inquire about research mentorship opportunities. See the Graduate Program and Undergraduate Research pages for more information.
