Plant Ecology and Biogeochemistry (EVB)

Faculty of Sciences | Biology of Organisms

(Code: ULB159)


Person in charge of the unit : MEERTS Pierre Jacques.

The research unit investigates biogeochemistry, and functional and evolutionary ecology of terrestrial ecosystems, especially in response to disturbance by
man. In particular, our expertise concerns mineral nutrients in the soil-plant system, and adaptations of plants to soil mineral nutrient stress (heavy
metal contaminations, ...).
