Population dynamics and adaptation in plants

This project group deals with spatial and temporal patterns of plant populations and factors that shape evolutionary change and distributions of plant species. Particularly, we examine how mating systems and population structure influence gene flow and genetic diversity in plants, and how plant populations respond to habitat fragmentation, invasive species and environmental factors such as climate change. Our research has a strong focus on conservation-related issues and involves a broad variety of methods from demographic models to common-garden experiments and molecular analyses.
