Keep an eye out for three Chapters in Brian Jordan’s forthcoming book “UV-B Radiation and Plant Life: Molecular Biology to Ecology“ (CABI publishers) co-authored by CanSEE group members.
- UV-B induced morphological changes; an enigma
by Marcel A.K. Jansen, T. Matthew Robson, Karel Klem and Otmar Urban.
- Plant responses to fluctuating UV environments
by Paul W. Barnes, T. Matthew Robson, Mark A. Tobler, Isabelle N. Bottger and Stephan D. Flint.
- Quantifying UV Radiation
by Pedro J. Aphalo and Titta K Kotilainen
David Israel and Craig Brelsford will follow the example of Saara Hartikainen two years ago, and participate in a BES Plant Environmental Physiology Group advanced practical course in techniques for plant ecophysiology near Lisbon in Portugal (12th-16th September).
After his internship with Charlie Warren in Sydney last winter, David will be looking to compare notes with some of the leading researchers in IRGA techniques for measuring the conductance of carbon dioxide and water from leaves.
After 6 months of field research monitoring spectral composition and understorey plant ecophysiology in forest-floor sunflecks, Marta Pieristè is ready for her southerly winter migration. Autumn is arriving pretty early at Lammi Biological Station, and as the leaves are falling in Finland, it’s time for Marta to start the French leg of her joint-doctoral studies at the University of Rouen in Normandy.
