The Medeiros lab focuses on understanding the complex relationships between plants and their environment and the evolution of plant adaptations. We conduct manipulative experiments and use the extensive collections and natural areas of The Holden Arboretum as well as the collections of the Rhododendron Species Foundation for our research. We employ techniques from physiological and evolutionary ecology to investigate: 1) leaf, xylem and root adaptations, 2) whole plant co-ordination of function, and 3) the effects of abiotic factors on plant function.
