5th Dormancy Symposium, Auckland NZ – November 2013
Following the very successful Workshop on Molecular Aspects of Seed Dormancy in Paris recently, ISSS members and others are reminded of the forthcoming 5th Plant Dormancy Symposium, to be held from 4th – 7th November, 2013, in Auckland, New Zealand.
Plant dormancy, with all its complexities, is gradually being teased apart by recent advances in the molecular, physiological and morphological aspects of its biology.
This symposium, the fifth in a series — following those in Oregon USA, 1995; France, 1999; The Netherlands, 2004 and Fargo USA, 2009 — is an excellent opportunity to bring together international experts and emerging scientists with an interest in this exciting field of plant biology.
The overall goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas on dormancy in plants and the development of new scientific collaborations. It will encompass the latest findings in the mechanisms of plant dormancy in vegetative buds, seeds and other meristems from a variety of experimental plant systems ranging from agronomic, horticultural and tree crops to model plants.
