Population Biology of Plants


P.I.: Xavier Picó

Research interests

I am interested in understanding the processes that govern the performance and dynamics of plant populations and their patterns of adaptive variation across space and time. Such processes include the effects of environmental factors on demographic patterns, the genetic composition of populations, and the genetic basis of ecologically and evolutionarily important life-cycle traits.

Research organisms

Arabidopsis thaliana

Bioinformatic, analytic, experimental skills
