Ågren Group: <br/>Ecology and evolution of plant populations

Our research group studies the population biology of plants. We are particularly interested in plant adaptation along climatic gradients and the ecological and evolutionary consequences of plant-pollinator and plant-herbivore interactions. We use a combination of field and greenhouse experiments, demographic and genetic studies to analyze factors governing the structure and dynamics of plant populations, population differentiation, and the evolution of morphological and phenological characters in plants.
