Applied and Environmental Botany

Our main field of study is root biology: 1) fine-root dynamics and environmental complexity; 2) identification of molecular factors controlling root system development; 3) analysis of root systems in agronomics plant. We are also trying to understand how to use ornamental plants in reinforced soils with anti-erosion purpose and how to assess the effects of artificial lights on plant growths.
