Project: Unravelling the effects of climate warming on the sexual reproduction of plants: common juniper (Juniperus communis) as a model species
- project duration
- 01-MAY-10 – 28-FEB-13
- Common juniper (Juniperus communis) is used as a model species to unravel the effects of climate warming on the sexual reproduction of plants. In four regions individuals are sampled along an altitudinal gradient. Pollen and seeds of different development stages are anatomized to examine the influence of temperature on the critical stages in the sexual reproduction process of Common juniper.
