Ted Botha

Ph.D. (Natal)

Emeritus Professor.  Ted’s main interest is functional anatomy. He holds an NRF “B” rating. His research involves studies of plant structure and function, the effect of long-term elevated CO2 on uptake and loading of photoassimilates in leaves under controlled environment, cell to cell transport in plants using techniques involving light, electron, fluotescence and confocal microscopy – mostly involving molecular probes. His research interests also encompass studies of the long-term effects of aphid and other suctorial insects feeding on the transport systems in leaves at the cellular and molecular level.
