Gail Taylor


Dr. Taylor’s research is focused around leafy green salad crops, particularly watercress and lettuce and fast growing trees for bioenergy. In each she is focused on understanding the genetic and genomic basis of quantitative  traits underpinning plant vigour, stress resilience and for leafy crops, nutrient densification. She has developed the only watercress breeding programme, globally and currently is establishing this crop in California.
