Annual Congress on Plant Science & Biosecurity will take place in the gorgeous city of Valencia, Spain during July 12-14, 2018 and the theme of the conference is "A Legislative Framework of Science Protecting Plant Health". ACPB-2018 conference provides a good mixture of topics with a variety of informative talks about current research, where delegates and invited speakers have a chance to interact on both a scientific and social ideas. We encourage teams working the plant health research to use the opportunity of science to exchange ideas and to meet, plan and engage at our esteemed meeting.
The theme of the meeting will be centred on “A Legislative Framework of Science Protecting Plant Health”, be it in the food we eat, the plants we grow in our farms, to the trees we walk through in the woods. ACPB-2018 gathering will unite plant science experts and invasive specialists from all over Europe and beyond, to examine novel methodologies for enhancing plant biosecurity and set up an endurable knowledge transfer.
A top scientific annual conference that should addresses the state of the art and future directions in plant biology research and education, basic and applied plant biology and covers plant biology in its broadest sense, encompassing agriculture, forestry, horticulture, ecology, environmental biology etc. It also includes science policy and plant science-based societal issues and includes contributions from students, Post Docs, senior scientists and policy makers from across Europe and beyond.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the Conference Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
The key to produce better crops to meet the needs of the growing world's population may lie in combining the traditional knowledge of subsistence farmers of the Ethiopian highlands with plant genomics. Researchers in Italy and Ethiopia conducted research that demonstrates that the indigenous knowledge of traditional farmers, passed on from one generation to the next since hundreds of years, can be measured in a quantitative way and used with advanced genomic and statistical methods to identify genes responsible for farmers' preference of wheat.
Climate change leads to loss of biodiversity worldwide. However, ecosystems with a higher biodiversity in the first place might be less affected a new study. Scientists found that when they experimentally warmed meadows, the diversity of nematode worms living in the soil went down in monocultures, whereas the opposite was true for meadows with many different herbaceous plant species.
equencing DNA collected from leaves on different branches of a 234-year-old oak tree on the University of Lausanne campus in Switzerland, plant biologist Philippe Reymond and colleagues found far fewer single base-pair substitutions than expected based on known plant mutations rates and the number of cell divisions that presumed to have occurred between an old branch near the tree’s base and a younger branch 40 meters higher up. The team, which did not analyze other types of genetic mutations such as deletions, published its results last week
Cook pines, a type of tall, slim evergreen native to a remote island in the South Pacific, at first glance appear to be falling over. Many tilt precariously to the side as if caught in a heavy wind, though no breeze ruffles their foliage. Though it may seem the result of chance, observe a stand of Cook pines, especially in locations far from their native habitat, and a kind of unnerving hive-mentality emerges. The trees all lean the same way, as if commanded by some ur-pine from afar.
Scientists have identified the evolutionary pathway that led some plants to turn carnivorous, a finding that explains why pitcher plants from different parts of the world appear strikingly similar despite having evolved independently. Pitcher plants capture insects by luring them into a pitfall trap - a cupped leaf with a waxy, slippery interior that makes it difficult to climb out. A soup of digestive fluids sits at the bottom of this chamber and breaks down the flesh and exoskeletons of prey. The study probes the origins of carnivory in several distantly related plants - including the Australian, Asian and American pitcher plants, which appear strikingly similar to the human (or insect) eye.
