PLANT BIOLOGY: FROM CELL TO ECOSYSTEM  

 

  • Cell biology: cell mechanisms involved in apical growth in male gametophyte of angiosperms.
  • Internalization and accumulation mechanisms of heavy metals in angiosperms and pterydophytes.
  • Plant ecology: plant-environment relations at species and community scale in alpine environment.
  • Forensic botany: experimental approach to taphonomy of forensic findings.
