Spatial Genetics

The Spatial Genetics group is in the Department of Geography and the Department of Chemistry, and part of the University Research Priority Program on Global Change and Biodiversity, at the UZH. We aim to map plant genetic diversity at different scales, and in different systems, both agricultural and wild, and to investigate how distributions of plant genotypes and traits (heritable characteristics) matter for ecosystems.
