Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Plant Water Relations
Undergraduate biology or chemistry majors with curious minds, good grades, and a strong work ethic are needed to help with several ongoing projects that focus on water transport in plants and xylem dysfunction.
- Development of rice varieties that are able to grow under aerobic conditions.
- Xylem dysfunction in Baldcypress trees subjected to salt stress.
- Xylem cavitation and recovery from cavitation fatigue in sunflower.
Undergraduate students that are enrolled in Southeastern’s Honors Program can use their lab experience to write an honors thesis and are especially encouraged to apply.
