The Plant Physiology research group (GRPV) is part of the research pole 'Agronomy' of the Earth and Life Institute (ELIA). ELIA rounds up multidisciplinary expertise over the biological, technological and socio-economical dimensions of agricultural productions, agrarian systems and open biotopes. The pole promotes the investigation of processes underlying the functioning and evolution of those systems, from organisms to populations.

GRPV explores the complex relationships between environmental factors and plant responses. In the marine field (salt marshes), the group investigates the effects of various factors, such as heavy metals (cadmium and zinc) and salinity (NaCl), on the physiological processes and responses of the halophyte plant species Kosteletzkya pentacarpos. The group aims to understand how these factors interact and influence the synthesis of certain compounds (ethylene, polyamines, cytokinin trans-zeatine riboside) in the plant, and how these interactions affect the plant's resistance or susceptibility to heavy metal toxicity and salinity stress.
