I am a trained biologist and horticultural scientists with a PhD in Plant Pathology. I am fascinated by the diversity in Horticulture which is partly mirrored in my research on ornamental plants for producing high value products, alternative approaches in plant production systems including substrates or urban horticulture, or drying plant oils in crop management and plant protection. There are so many things to discover in Horticulture. I am always keen to learn new things. More on my own website at: https://www.nawaro.uni-bonn.de/mitarbeiter/thorsten-kraska
