Florent Pantin - Lecturer SupAgro


Florent Pantin

Plant functioning and development are strongly controlled by the environment. As a feedback, plant physiology and architecture modify the microclimate. My objective is to contribute to a better understanding of these eco-physio-devo interactions.

My research is focused on the following axes:

  • Stomatal control and leaf hydraulics
  • Nighttime transpiration
  • Integrative analysis of leaf development

I study plant responses to drought and heat stress using biophysical and genetic approaches, mostly on grapevine and Arabidopsis.

Any spontaneous application to work or study with me is welcomed. Please feel free to contact me.  |  +33 (0) 499 612 679
