Research Interests / Job description
(Emeritus) (1) Reproductive biology of subtropical fruit trees, with emphasis on the role of the pollen parent in pollination, fruit set and fruit abscission processes.

(2) Molecular characterization of subtropical fruit trees’ germplasm collections.

(3) Non-destructive methods for determination of fruit maturity.
