Marco Landi is a senior scientist in plant physiology and biochemistry at University of Pisa, Italy. His research focuses on biochemical, molecular and physiological mechanisms through which Mediterranean plants accommodate environmental stress. Recent research has investigated the photoprotective role of carotenoids, anthocyanins and flavonoids (sensu lato) in plants subjected to climate change factors. His research group is also developing optical models to assess the occurrence of anthocyanin-metal binding, to explore the possibility that anthocyanins might additionally function as metal chelators.
