Dr Chris Szota



I study how plants and soils can be used to improve urban landscapes. My background is in plant ecophysiology, studying nutrient uptake mechanisms and drought tolerance in vegetation far from the city: at restored mine-sites and eucalypt plantations.

Harsh urban environments provide a fantastic opportunity for plant ecophysiologists to contribute to the design of novel vegetated systems; finding species which can not only survive, but also cool microclimates and reduce both air- and water-borne pollution.
