Plant Resilience to Climate Challenges

Wasteneys, Geoffrey O. [1].

Plant Resilience to Climate Challenges.

Seven billion humans on planet Earth in combination with the changing climate have made agriculture and forestry more challenging than ever before. Identifying and understanding the mechanisms by which plants respond and adapt to abiotic stress is the critical first step towards promoting plant resilience. This symposium will highlight the diverse strategies in both pure and applied research that are currently employed to understand how plants and algae cope with osmotic stress, salt stress and drought. These research strategies include phenomics, QTL mapping, chemical genomics, proteomics, biochemistry and cell biology using model systems ranging from marine algae to trees.
