The biology of plants is largely determined by the environment and thus the natural vegetation as well as the crop plants of the Mediterranean are of particular interest with regard to their adaptation mechanisms/strategies.

Our research group focuses mainly on plant responses to water stress, and associated stresses as, high light , temperature, etc., in order to unravel the underlying mechanisms of the fascinating plasticity in planta and the potential for biotechnology and agronomy applications.

The group was officially formed in 2002, as a result of a call for tenders of our university, but its roots had been well established beforehand by professors and  PhD students and their enthusiasm and will for improvements of knowledge in physiology, biotechnology and agronomy. Hence, our aim is to contribute to a more profound knowledge in this research field with the maximum competitiveness and scientific excellence, and to patent applications for sustained agriculture in the Mediterranean region.
