Research at the department focuses on plants, animals, soil and microorganisms – from molecules through organisms to populations and anthropogenic ecosystems. It is our vision to maintain and develop our position as one of the principle centres for plant biology based on excellent basic and applied research.
Research at the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences is divided into nine sections covering a wide range of subjects. In addition, several research groups are involved in cross disciplinary and cross institutional centres of which some have head quarters at the department.
