MAJOR ONGOING RESEARCH:
Studies on genetically sustainable management and domestication practices of trees in the face of climate change. We work with more than 25 European species including Quercus, Fraxinus, Tilia, Ulmus, Corylus, Cystisus and Malus. We also study tropical food tree species in co-operation with partners in West Africa.
Studies on genetics of host pathogen interaction with focus on resistance European Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) against the novel Ash decline (Hymenoscyphus fraxineus) in Europe.
