Vegetation abides by different rules depending on the continent, new research shows. Prof. Bill Hoffmann participated in a study published in Science suggesting that, in contrast to Australia and South America, woody growth in Africa would continue to increase during a 4°C increase in global temperatures.
Looking for Plant Biology? As of July 1, the Plant Biology Dept. became the Plant and Microbial Biology Dept. and incorporated five faculty from Microbiology and three from Genetics. Graduate and undergraduate degree programs in plant biology and microbiology have not changed, and information about both can be found under the "Academics" tab. The change in faculty distribution is a result of the realignment between CALS and the new College of Sciences.
