What we do

We seek to understand which plants grow where, and why.

We study plant traits to understand how vegetation adapts to environmental changes.

We develop approaches for remotely sensing plant biodiversity to support conservation.

Research Themes

Functional traits

We study the unique adaptations that plant species have evolved to survive and grow under contrasting environmental conditions.

Communities

We study the drivers of plant community composition and diversity across environmental gradients.

Spectranomics

We study foliar spectral signatures of plant species under contrasting environments to understand their biological and ecological bases.

Biodiversity mapping

We develop new approaches to map plant spectral, functional, and taxonomic biodiversity to guide conservation.
