BSc: Biology

Short CV

Aris Kyparissis has graduated from the Biology Department of the University of Patras, Greece. He performed his PhD thesis (Phlomis fruticosa L.: the pattern of seasonal leaf dimorphism and the adaptive potential of leaves to the Mediterranean climate) in the Laboratory of Plant Physiology of the same Department under the supervision of Professor Yiannis Manetas.

Today he serves as an Associate Professor of Plant Ecophysiology in the Department of Biological Applications and Technologies of the University of Ioannina, where he teaches Plant Anatomy and Morphology, Plant Physiology and Ecophysiology of Mediterranean Plants.
