Presentation

Dr. Samuel Cordeiro Vitor Martins is an agronomist and received his PhD in Plant Physiology from the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV) in 2015, with a sandwich period at the University of Tasmania (Australia). Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Plant Biology at UFV and serves as Assistant Editor of the Brazilian Journal of Botany.

Research interest

Ecophysiology of photosynthesis, water relations, plant hydraulics.

 

Current research projects aim to understand how hydraulic characteristics of plants, such as leaf hydraulic conductance and vulnerability to cavitation, are involved in stomatal regulation and photosynthetic performance under normal and stressful growth conditions.

Investigations are performed using plants of agricultural interest, in order to provide useful information for breeding programs, but studies with plants of different functional groups (ferns, conifers and angiosperms) are also carried out in order to understand the evolution of these processes.


 

Current projects include

Interspecific variability of anatomical and physiological characteristics determining photosynthetic potential in woody species

 

Interaction between hydraulic and photosynthetic parameters in Coffea spp.

 

Role of hydraulic vulnerability in drought tolerance in herbaceous and woody species

 

Coordination of water transport in the liquid and gas phases in species with distinct anatomical characteristics
