Dear visitor,

Welcome to the webpage of the Laboratory of Plant-Environment Interactions (Alcazar Lab) at the Department of Biology, Health & Environment of the University of Barcelona.

We investigate the adaptation of plants to local environments. We focus on the evolutionary adaptation of plant populations to abiotic and biotic stresses, which are major challenges for plant survival under the current climate change predictions. Derived from our research, we investigate ways for improving stress protection.

For a more detailed view of our research, please have a look at our Research Projects and Scientific Publications sections. You can follow an updated list of our activities and publications in the NEWS section below. For any other enquires, do not hesitate to contact us directly.
