The Plant Systematics research group performs studies on:
1) Species diversity and relationships among cultivated plants and their wild relatives
2) Tropical agro-biodiversity and ethno-botany
3) Genetic diversity, evolution, and domestication of plants
4) Molecular and morphological identification of plants at all levels
5) Molecular methods in plant systematics and phylogeny
6) Genetic resources for future breeding.

We focus on the applied aspects of these topics, i.e., how can the genetic and morphological variation in plants help optimize plant breeding strategies? What are the potentials of known and hitherto unknown genetic variation within and between species? How can molecular identification help land management in both natural and cultivated areas?

We offer botanical counseling services. Read more about what we can do for you here.
