The main research is on population genetic procesess and reproductive biology in woody plants species. It is experimentally based and molecular markers are used to evaluate ecological and evolutionary hypotheses.

Ongoing research activities

  • Genetic variation in susceptibility to the ash dieback fungus (Hymenocyphus pseudoalbidus) in Danish ash stands
  • Conservation of genetic resources in threatened Dalbergia timber species
  • Prebreeding studies of Jatropha cucas, a species used for bio-fuel
  • Optimisation of pollination of the Sahelian fruit trees Parkia biglobosa and Vittelaria paradoxa
