Plant hormones play an important role in the regulation of plant development. I am investigating the biological functions and interactions of a number of different plant hormones, including the gibberellins, brassinosteroids, auxin, abscisic acid and ethylene. This work covers a range of species, including pea, Eucalyptus and grape, and involves: defining biosynthetic pathways, characterising mutants deficient in hormone biosynthesis or signalling, environmental regulation of hormone biosynthesis, and cross-talk between hormone systems.
