I’m a plant ecophysiologist, turned molecular biologist/biochemist, turning zoologist. A major highlight has been the annual SEB conference. I really enjoy the fun atmosphere that is created when people from such diverse background get together, and I don’t know any other plant scientist who knows as many “fish people” as I do.
