Research

research overview

  • We take an integrative approach to synthesize the ecology, physiology, and anatomy of plants in a comparative framework. We identify the physiological and structural traits that are important to plant success, including the ability to collect solar energy, perform photosynthesis, and distribute sugars throughout the plant. We compare these characteristics among plant species with contrasting growth patterns and acclimation strategies. Most recently, we have identified structural features of the foliar phloem that are important in setting the maximal rate of photosynthesis that leaves of different species can exhibit.
