  • Special Minisymposium: The Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology section of ASPB will also be hosting a minisymposium. Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology encompasses a wide range of spatial and temporal scales and is the interface between mechanistic understanding of plants and their behavior in natural and controlled environments. To celebrate the establishment of a new discipline-based section within ASPB, this special Minisymposium on Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology will highlight research from speakers representing current and future leaders. Confirmed speakers are Missy Holbrook, Harvard University and Joy Ward, University of Kansas.
