We are pleased to announce that a symposium will be dedicated to C4 and CAM processes. The meeting will be held in
July 2007 as a Satellite to the International Photosynthesis Congress in Glasgow, (visit SEB
website) in part to celebrate the huge strides made in understanding the comparative physiology of C4 and CAM over the past 50
years, providing timely lessons for the integration of molecular processes in both ecological and agronomic contexts. At one level, we intend
to pay tribute to key pioneers in the field, such as Barry Osmond and Gerry Edwards. Primarily, however, we seek to establish a comparative
framework which will review recent developments and set the research agenda for the subsequent decade.
The venue for accommodation will be Corpus Christi College,
University of Cambridge, with lectures 5 minutes walk away in the
Department of Plant Sciences, on the following days: 17- 20th (Tues - Fri) July, 2007.
The first session, on "Sustainability of food and bioenergy production for a changing world"
will start around 10.30 am 17th July. We are within easy reach of Stansted Airport, for onward
travel to Glasgow. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in participating.
