Rob Skelton

Bio: I am a post doctoral researcher at the University of California Berkeley (USA), examining fundamental questions in plant physiology and ecology. I completed my PhD at the University of Cape Town (South Africa) in 2014. My dissertation was an investigation into the role of plant hydraulics in determining the response of Fynbos to drought. I have also conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Tasmania (Australia), where I examined the physiological factors that influence gas exchange in plant communities. In my spare time I enjoy appreciating nature, particularly interesting plants, and thinking about evolution. I think people benefit tremendously from having forests and natural plant communities to explore, and think we should do more to promote their conservation.
