Welcome to the Kessler Lab


We study the chemical and molecular mechanisms, ecological consequences and evolutionary aspects of plant induced responses to herbivory. As a specific focus the group tries to understand how plant chemistry functions as a vehicle of information transfer between organisms and so affects ecological and evolutionary processes. The group's research includes a number of basic and applied study systems in North America, Kenya, Peru, Costa Rica and Colombia.
