Welcome to the PhylloLab!

The surface of plant leaves, or the phyllosphere, harbors hyperdiverse microbial communities. We study the influence of these communities on plant performance and ecosystem functions in temperate forests, tropical forests and agricultural ecosystems. The main applications are in the fields of plant disease biocontrol and biomonitoring of ecosystem health.
