Ecologie comparative des organismes, des communautés et des écosystèmes

Introduction

I am interested in the origins of phenotypic variation in plants. Previously I focused on the genetic origins of variation in transpiration in grapevine and Arabidopsis thaliana. Currently I am working on the more fundamental origins of trait variation in crop species, especially maize and sorghum. For example, I investigate how traits correlate with the size of the genome, cell, organ and whole plant.

Example of variation in the height and flowering time of different sorghum varieties :
