Partim Physiology :  Tackles vegetative and generative development, physiology of seeds, senescence, regeneration and stress resistence.



Partim Morphology : Typical features of a plant cell (vacuole, cell wall, plasmodesmata,...) and their characteristics are discussed in the most recent context of plant research output.  We investigate the role of a plant cell in frame of the function of tissues e.g.  during water transport in seed plants.
