Kathleen Prinz

Kathleen Prinz is a research assistant in the section Forest Genetics and Forest Tree Breeding, Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology. Her research interests is the investigation of (i) relationships between genetic diversity and biology of plant species, (ii) human impact on genetic diversity and ecology of plant populations, and (iii) the conservation of genetic resources.

Key expertise:
• Population Genetics and Biology of Plants
• Molecular Genetics of Plants
• Conservation Genetics and Biology
• Human Impact on Plant Populations
