Botanik-Tagung 2024

De Domingo, Septiembre 15, 2024 hasta Jueves, Septiembre 19, 2024

We cordially invite you to the Botanik-Tagung 2024 - International Conference of the German Society for Plant Sciences (DBG), which will be held at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg on 15 - 19 September 2024.

Nearly 30 internationally leading plenary and keynote speakers will highlight seminal current developments across different research areas. The conference motto - Growing Solutions for Growing Challenges - reflects that plant science needs to mobilize its full potential to counter existential problems of our planet. Photosynthetic organisms are the only means to sequester CO2 in large amounts, but environmental conditions in their habitats, from oceans to rainforests, are turning increasingly unfavourable.

Among the more than 30 speakers on 16th September at 16:30, Josep Peñuelas, CREAF researcher, will give a talk about vegetation, carbon cycle and climate change: we are requesting to much to plants?

The conference will be located in the centre of the beautiful and historic university town of Halle (Saale), also home of the German Academy of Sciences, Leopoldina. With around 20,000 students, Halle has a great variety of pubs, bars, and restaurants to socialize and to continue scientific discussions until late.

Registration is mandatory
