SCHOOL OF PLANT BIOLOGY

THE THREE RESEARCH AREAS OF THE SCHOOL




1. CROPPING SYSTEMS


The Cropping Systems focus includes broadscale agricultural and the horticultural areas of research. Agriculture and horticulture apply and integrate the disciplines that form the foundation of modern plant sciences – genetics & plant breeding, ecology and physiology, developmental biology, molecular biology and natural product chemistry. These areas of research are also greatly impacted by the interactions of plants with pathogens, an area covered by the discipline of plant pathology. Opportunities exist for professional career development and for crop scientists to contribute to global social and economic well-being. Research funds are increasingly directed towards these goals and many opportunities for collaboration exist with organisations such as CSIRO, Centre for Legumes in Mediterranean Agriculture, Department of Agriculture and Food (WA), Centre of Excellence for Ecohydrology, Future Farm Industries CRC, international aid organisations and researchers from other Schools in the University.
