Curriculum Vitae
Francesca Dalla Vecchia born in Vicenza on 27/5/1960. In 1983 degree in Biology at Padua University. In 1990 PhD in Evolutionistic Biology at the University of Padova. From 1991 to 2002 Researcher (Faculty of Sciences) at the same University. From 2002 Associated Professor at the Department of Biology of Padova University.
Main research interest: effects of biotic stress on plants; effects of heavy metals and pharmaceutical on morpho-physiology of microalgae, macroalgae and plants used in phytoremediation; eco-morpho-physiological studies on different species of Crassulaceae in the Euganean hills; studies on seed germination.
Author of 69 publications in international journals.
