UK PlantSci 2016. Plants in a changing world: molecule to ecosystem

Organised by:

SCI Agrisciences and UKPSF

John Innes Conference Centre, Norwich, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


UK PlantSci is the annual conference of the UK Plant Sciences Federation (UKPSF). It provides a unique opportunity to learn about the breadth of cutting edge plant science research in the UK, and to meet with plant scientists outside of usual networks. The meeting hosts a diverse range of talks, all held in plenary and pitched towards a general plant science audience. Every year delegates report back on the value of this approach, citing the quality and breadth of talks among their favourite aspects of the conference.

SCI Agrisciences Group is organising a session on 'Abiotic stress in crops: problems and solutions'.
