Characterization of the genetic diversity of species of forest and agricultural of interest in relation to nutritional value and yield as well as technological, biotechnological and biomedical applications. Evaluation of seed development, yield and nutritional quality as affected by multiple stressors by phenotyping and biochemical tools. Evaluation of carbon metabolism in plants (photosynthesis, primary metabolism, cellular distribution) affected by multiple stressors. Multiscale approach to plant growth and productivity making use of physiological, biochemical and omic´s tools.
