Colonization of the terrestrial environment 2016
25-27 July 2016, Bristol, UK
Travel grant submission deadline: Thursday 21st April 2016
Poster abstract submission deadline: Thursday 19th May 2016
The purpose of this symposium is to explore the contribution that plants and mycorrhizal fungi made to the colonization of the terrestrial environment. Building on the success of the 25th New Phytologist Symposium, the focus will be on exploring current uncertainties in four major themes:
2) Anatomy – developmental genetics;
3) Refining biogeochemical models to take account of the role of plants and fungi; and
4) Anatomy and physiology of early land plants – what can we learn from extant species?
The meeting will take place over three days in Bristol, UK. There will be a number of invited and selected talks (chosen from submitted poster abstracts). There will also be dedicated time for a poster session and conference dinner.
