Cambial biology and xylogenesis.

We are monitoring and altering xylogenesis (the phenology of wood formation) to understand how trees form wood as related to other growth components (primary and root growth), to infer how xylogenesis is controlled by disturbances (climate, drought, logging, nitrogen availability) and to understand how growth sinks affect carbon and water use efficiency in trees.

Xylogenesis and the functional xylem anatomy of woody plants (PNI+D+i).
