Institut für Systematische und Evolutionäre Botanik

PD Dr. Peter Szövényi group

Our primary goal is to understand the basic principles underlying both macro and micro evolutionary changes using plants as model organisms. In particular, our interest extends over several fields of plant biology, including ecology, population genetics, molecular evolution, evo-devo, systematics and comparative genomics with special attention to basal groups of land plants. We combine field-based ecological and lab-based molecular/reverse genetic approaches including computationally intensive modeling and genome analysis to understand evolutionary processes both at the macro- and microevolutionary scales.
