Specialties of Urs Feller:
Response of crop plants to heat and drought: changes on the cellular level, productivity and composition of harvested plant products; down-regulation of photosynthesis at elevated temperature.

Effects of extreme climatic events on crop plants

Extreme events (e.g. drought, heat waves) considerably influence growth and productivity of trees and grassland plants. The recovery phase after an extreme event is equally important as the stress phase for the overall performance. Water relations and leaf physiology are key aspects.
