Biotic Interactions - Prof. Dr. Matthias Erb

Plant interactions with the biotic and abiotic environment determines plant survival in nature and yield in agriculture. We elucidate the strategies that plants employ to resist biotic stresses, with a particular focus on the role of plant secondary metabolites in plant-herbivore, plant-microbe and multitrophic interactions. By combining different techniques and plant models in an interdisciplinary approach, we aim at generating a flow of knowledge from single genes to ecological interactions across a gradient from wild systems to agriculture.
