Aquatic plant photosynthesis as a driver of large pH changes in wetlands
This honours project will explore large pH changes in wetlands and how aquatic plant photosynthesis contribute to this process.
The broad focus of our research group is plant physiology, with specific interests in plant nutrition, plant stresses caused by hostile soils, mistletoes and adaption to low water supply and variations in available light.
Physiological aspects of aquatic plants are also included. Most projects are lab or glasshouse-based, but can involve some aspect of fieldwork.
You are also encouraged to propose any topic in the area of plant physiology that you think might make an interesting honours project.
