The Plant Ecology and Physiology cluster of the Institute for Water and Wetland Research studies responses to and consequences of abiotic and biotic stresses in plants. Our work stands out by collaborative research in which physiological and ecological approaches are increasingly integrated. We study responses to abiotic stresses such as flooding, drought, heat, and nutrients, but also herbivores and pathogens. Each of these stresses are relevant for individual plants as well as plant populations under changing environmental conditions. We study natural as well as agricultural systems, including members of the Solanaceae family. An increasing number of studies is carried out as public-private partnerships with industry and other stakeholders.
