Seed collection, germination and growth of different forest plant species, in controlled environmental conditions by LED light

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Research activity will deal with both field collection of forest tree seeds and their germination and growth. In particular, germination and growth will be carried in controlled growing condition chambers. One chamber will be lighted up by high pressure Metal halide Lamps and the other with new technology LED Lamps. Seed morphology such as weight and dimension will be analyzed. Germination parameters on different plant species will be analyzed. Afterwards, morphological (biomass of different plant parts, root length, leaf area and number, etc.), anatomical (number and size of vessels, xylem thickness etc.) and physiological (gas exchange, leaf fluorescence, leaf water potential etc.) traits of growing seedlings, will be examined in order to compare plant growth under different light conditions.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
