Main Research interests:

My main research interests are centered on floral morphology, the evolution of flowers and the use of floral characters in plant phylogeny. The great changes in the phylogeny based on molecular data represent an exciting field to revisit morphology in a new framework of plant affinities and to link morphological studies with other research areas, such as evolutionary developmental genetics (evo-devo) and ecology. I am specialized in the study of floral development and anatomy, which can be increasingly used as support for the molecular phylogeny in understanding the homology of characters for phylogenetic analyses and in the understanding of the underlying genetics of character expression.

Through my earlier studies I have acquired a broad expertise, which is becoming rare nowadays. My broad knowledge of flowering plants has enabled me to explore other domains of plant sciences to actively contribute to questions related to flowers and their evolution. Ongoing projects have been set up in collaboration with researchers from other institutions and several students are contributing to this research on a regular basis. Major questions I am currently interested in are the evolution of the flower in angiosperms, with special emphasis on the evolution of merism, the origin of the structural basis of core eudicots, and the origin and evolution of petals in angiosperms, particularly Caryophyllales. Current research interests cover diverse groups, such as Caryophyllales, Ranunculales, Sapotaceae, the Primuloid clade of Ericales, Oxalidales, Alismatales, and Santalales.

The understanding of the floral structure remains one of the most important topics in botanical research. Floral organ position and numbers are generally highly conservative in evolution and are important indicators of systematic relationships. In this age of molecular taxonomy it is important to revisit flower morphology, as it contains a wealth of information that can be better understood in the new framework of relationships. My book “Floral Diagrams”, published by Cambridge University Press in 2010, aims to contribute to a better understanding of structural aspects of flowers and will hopefully coincide a renaissance in the study of flowers.
