Plant flooding stress research at Utrecht University.


We study plant responses to flooding. Like heatwaves and drought, severe flooding events are on the rise globally. This trend is predicted to continue in the coming decades, posing a serious threat to food security.



Our mission is to understand how plants perceive, respond and acclimate to flooding.


I no longer update this website. Since 2022 I am leading a new research group at Utrecht University 'Plant Stress Resilience'.
