The objective of the IGEPP research unit is to describe, understand and predict the functioning of plants, their associated organisms and the agro-ecosystems, in order to contribute to the improvement of new plant protection methods taking into account sustainability, respect for the environment, and low input utilisation.
IGEPP studies plant adaptation to their biotic and abiotic changing environment. Approaches range from molecular and genetic studies of plant and associated organisms adaptation, to the development of new sustainable methods for plant protection and culture.
