RESEARCH INTERESTS

Filip VandelookMy research focusses on the ecology and evolution of angiosperm seeds at the level of species and populations. Using comparative methods, macro-evolution and ecological correlates of seed traits is studied in Apiaceae, Amaranthaceae and Rubiaceae as well as at the Angiosperm level. At the population level I focus on Geranium robertianum and Gentiana pneumonanthe to study variation in plant traits at large biogeographical scales.
Some of my research is being applied to ameliorate methods for ex-situ conservation of the collections at the Botanic Garden Meise, including representatives of the Belgian flora, as well as crop wild relatives of beans, coffee and banana.
