Plants and climate change: The role of plants in achieving net zero

Video, Mar 03 2022

Biochemistry Focus Webinar Series

60 minutes

In this webinar, our speakers considered how state of the art technologies are being exploited to understand how the greening of the Earth is changing, our understanding of photosynthetic regulation is increasing and how genotype-environment-phenotype-relationships might be exploited in climate mitigation.

Nature-based solutions to climate mitigation are a key feature of climate change planning and the roadmap to net zero in many countries. There is therefore an urgent need to gain a better understanding of how plants and their associated microbiomes will respond to elevated global atmospheric CO2 concentrations and the accompanying changes in weather patterns and threats posed by changing patterns of pathogen and pest invasions.

Invited speakers:

  • Dr Yude Pan, USDA Forest Service, USA
  • Professor Alexander Ruban, Queen Mary University London, UK
  • Professor Wolfram Weckwerth, University of Vienna, Austria

This webinar was co-chaired by the Guest Editors of a related Biochemical Journal themed collection, Professor Christine Foyer, Professor of Plant Sciences at the University of Birmingham, UK, and Professor Ilse Kranner, Professor of Plant Physiology at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.
