Prof. Dr. Florian Schiestl group

In my group we study (co)adaptation of plants and pollinators, herbivores, as well as the adaptation of plants to abiotic factors such as soil and climate. We are specifically interested in the function and evolution of floral signals, rewards, and defense against herbivores. We use field experiments as well as experimental evolution in the greenhouse, genomic tools, and analytical chemical tools such as gas chromatography and HPLC. Last but not least, we use behavioral experiments with pollinator insects and herbivores to study how insect behavior impacts selection on plants.
