On Monday 15 February 2016 a mini-symposium on “Dynamics of plant adaptation” will be organized by the Horticulture and Product Physiology group.
Time and location:
9:30 AM – 1:00 PM
Wageningen Campus - Radix building 107 - room C091 (Radix-Mid)

The physiological effects of abiotic factors on plants are commonly studied under constant climate conditions. However, in practice plants are faced with continuously changing conditions. This mini-symposium will provide a unique opportunity to get an overview of the dynamics of plant responses to fluctuating climate conditions.
