Plant Response to Environment across Scales
Auditorium Maximum HG F30
Recent developments in genomics, phenomics and enviromics have allowed scientists to extract a wealth of new information. The symposium will highlight new strategies of assessing plant response to stress from gene to field and across ecosystem level.
The world’s ecosystems are subject to rapid changes due to human activities. This poses many challenges, such as global warming and biodiversity loss. For a better understanding of human environmental impact, geological and biological changes need to be described and quantified. These themes will be further developed through presentations, flash talks and a poster award. The presentations are divided into three sessions under the main theme of plant response to the environment:
- Session 1: Response at genome scale
- Session 2: Response at cellular or plant scale
- Session 3: Response at ecosystem scale
Furthermore the poster award is envisioned to reward the three best presenters for preparing a top scientific poster. Due consideration is given to scientific objectivity, contribution to the field, relevance to the conference theme and overall presentation.
