“Greening our Cities: Better Trees and Soils”- Nina Bassuk

Monday, March 16, 2020 at 12:20pm

Plant Science Building, 404

Nina Bassuk
Cornell University

I work on improving the quality of urban life by enhancing the functions of plants within the urban ecosystem. We integrate plant stress physiology, horticultural science, plant ecology and soil science and applies them to three broad areas of inquiry. They are:

1) The selection, evaluation and propagation of superior plants with improved tolerance of biotic and abiotic stresses, and enhanced functional uses in the disturbed landscape.

2) Developing improved technologies for assessing and ameliorating site limitations to improve plant growth and development.

3) Developing improved transplant technologies to insure the successful establishment of plants in the urban environment.
