NWO Vici for Erik Poelman, Wageningen University and Research

Erik Poelman receives one of the prestigious Vici grants of the NWO talent programme.  His research focuses on plants and the uncertainty they experience in not knowing when and by what insects they may be attacked. In responding to and defending themselves from the current attacker, plants must also calculate the risk of attacks by future assailants. Poelman studies the evolution of this type of stress management in plants. More information on the NWO or the WUR website
