AG Biodiversity and Evolution of Plants

G. Kadereit group


The G. Kadereit Group conducts broadly sampled phylogenetic studies in Chenopodiaceae, Zygophyllaceae, Aizoaceae and Melastomataceae investigating the systematics, biogeography and evolution of these angiosperm families. Our special interest is the evolution of complex traits such as C4 photosynthesis, CAM photosynthesis, salt tolerance and fast seed germination.
