2.00.00 - Physiology and Genetics
Division 2 includes both physiology and genetics, in recognition of the close linkage and interaction between these basic biological disciplines. It also has a close connection with that part of Division 7 concerned with the physiology and genetics of resistance to pests, diseases and abiotic factors, including air pollution. Research activities include root, stem canopy and whole tree processes, reproduction, seed physiology, plant development, nutrient cycling, and tree response to temperate, drought and global climate change. Genetic research includes breeding of important species via sexual reproduction as well as asexual reproduction from cells and tissues. It also includes genetic mapping, genetic transformation and engineering of trees, marker-assisted tree improvement, and the genetics of biodiversity.
