Area of Interest

Investigating the influence of UV-B LEDs and solar radiation on leaf temperature and

water leaf potential of different species under different PAR backgrounds in controlled

environment as well as under spectral modifying filters in the field.The aim of this

project is to investigate the underlying mechanism responsible for leaf temperature

change in relation to UV exposure and the impact of exploiting this phenomenon for

more sustainable horticulture systems.
