Plant biology

The Department of Biology affords rich opportunities for research in the plant sciences. Areas of study include the molecular characterization of plant development and reproduction, as well as genetic and physiological studies that aim to elucidate how plants interact with the abiotic environment. In addition, work with plant systematics and plant-herbivore interactions focuses on understanding the abundance and diversity of plant species at both evolutionary and ecosystem scales.
