Professor Michele Holbrook studies the physics and physiology of vascular transport in plants with the goal of understanding how constraints on the movement of water and solutes between soil and leaves influences ecological and evolutionary processes. Dr. Holbrook is currently working on questions relating to embolism repair, leaf hydraulic design, and xylem evolution.Long-distance transport physiology in plants; xylem:phloem interactions.
-- Root physiology; interactions between uptake and growth.
-- Water relations associated with flowering and flower production.
-- Biomechanics of growth and development.
-- Factors controlling uptake and movement of water in tropical trees.
