Global Plant Council / SEB Plant Section Symposium on Stress Resilience

Dear colleagues, 


I’m writing to let you know that registration for the Global Plant Council/SEB Plant Section Symposium on Stress Resilience is now open. This Symposium will take place on 23–25 October 2015, in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil. Please can you circulate this information to your members? If you have a website or social media accounts it would be great if you could share this information there too.  


The meeting aims to bring together experts from across the world to discuss current research efforts in plant stress resilience, showcase new approaches and technologies and build new networks and collaborations that will contribute to global efforts to develop crops that are better able to deal with fluctuating and stressful environmental conditions.
