Abstract:
The research of the Laboratory of Plant Ecology focuses on plant-environment interactions with a special emphasis on exploring factors that determine, enhance or limit water and carbon fluxes.

The marine aspect of the research is related to mangroves and includes the influence of siltation on anatomical and hydraulic features as well as the water use and stem diameter variations of mangrove species.
