M.S., M.P.S & Ph.D.
Environmental physiology provides students with advanced training in the nature and control of biological processes. Current interests include mechanisms of drought tolerance in plants; plant and microbial enzymology; virology; toxicity and disposition of insecticides and environmental toxicants in vertebrates; plant defenses against phytophagous invertebrates; thermal exchange in bird eggs; plant reproductive biology; and genetic improvement of willow and poplar.
