The Doherty Lab investigates the connections between time and stress in plants. We have two major research objectives. The first is to use time as a tool to interrogate the signaling networks that allow a plant to perceive and respond to a stress. Secondly, we are interested in understanding how changes in temporal patterns (earlier springs, warmer nights) affect the productivity of crop species.
