Stefan Andersson, professor, lecturer
I have a background as a systematist and perform genetic and experimental research on the evolution of wild plants, with special emphasis on natural selection, ecotypic variation, floral diversification, and the evolutionary effects of inbreeding. My interests also include pollination ecology, conservation biology and quantitative genetics.

My teaching duties include basic and advanced courses in botany, floristics, plant evolution and conservation biology.
