Prof Timotheus van der Niet

Associate Professor

Prof Timo van der Niet is fascinated by two aspects of biodiversity: variation in form and a large number of species. He seeks answers to questions related to the function of morphological diversity and the origin of new species. He studies this by focusing on interactions between plants and pollinators in diverse systems in South Africa and other regions.
