Core research:

How plants grow in adverse adverse environments

Specific areas of research involve:

  1. Plant response to abiotic stress, including physiological, metabolic and gene expression events that underlie long-term stresses such as heat, drought and flooding; 
  2. Response of woody species to elevated carbon dioxide atmospheres and how this interacts with low water supply; 
  3. Isoprenoid emissions from woody species and how they are affected by abiotic stresses;
  4. Cereal biochemistry and use of proteomics in identifying provenance of seed;
