Plants are masters of adaptation. They almost have always means to defend themselves against pathogens, climate fluctuations, and extreme weather conditions. Only with their sensitive antennas and emergency call programs have they been able to survive for millions of years. Looking for allies in this battle is part of their survival strategy. They interact with fungi, bacteria, and insects in order to ward off enemies or to attract the enemies of their enemies. Plant network tactics are the focus of the 3rd Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium in Halle an der Saale. Seven high-ranking plant experts from Germany and Israel will present their latest research results for discussion at this international symposium on 22 and 23 June 2017 at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry.
Anyone interested, in particular students and young scientists, is cordially invited to this unique gathering of experts in central Germany. Admission is free. Registration is required however because space is limited. Please visit our website for the program and further information for registration.
