Main Research Interests

  • Microevolutionary processes, with special emphasis on the role of mating system and environmental heterogeneity in determining the spatial distribution of genetic variation in plant populations.
  • Plant genome structure and organization, with special attention to linkage analysis, epistatic interactions between molecular markers in natural populations and linkage to quantitative traits involved in the resistance to stress factors.
  • Molecular evolution, in particular in the validation of the hypothesis that repetitive sequences might play an important role in evolution at the molecular level (e.g., molecular drive sensu Dover) and might be involved in speciation.
  • Reconstruction of evolutionary history of forest tree species by genetic methods, studies about the migration routes of forest species after the last ice-age in Europe, recognition of genetic reservoirs as a useful source of genetic resources for plant breeding and amelioration of adaptive traits
