Dr. Onno Muller
deputy Shoot Dynamics, head field phenotyping
Onno Muller is a plant ecophysiologist interested in how and why plants respond to their environment, specifically leaves of plants in their natural habitat. Experienced in field phenotyping, quantifying photosynthesis and its relationship to leaf nitrogen, rubisco, fluorescence, leaf and vein anatomy among others, in lab and field conditions. Internationally orientated and fascinated by non-invasive methods.
With his group he combines advanced sensors as well as advance positioning for high spatial and temporal throughput in plant trait measurements. For example, we implemented and are coordinating field phenotyping under elevated CO2 in the BreedFACE, as well under photovoltaics in the APV 2.0. project as in the Phenorob central experiment. For photosynthesis phenotyping we mostly use the light induced fluorescence transient method.
