Open call for Plantae Presents short talk submissions: Heat-proof, drought-proof, flood-proof plants

J.S. Quick,

In an effort to provide more speaking opportunities in the Plantae Presents virtual seminar series, we’ve scheduled four “open calls”. Anyone can submit a seven-minute video on the designated research topic, and all will be posted to the Plantae YouTube channel. Four speakers will be selected from the submitted videos to contribute to a panel discussion.

The submission deadline is Monday, November 9th for videos on the topic of Heat-proof, drought-proof, flood-proof plants. Submissions are welcomed on any aspect of abiotic stress responses, from basic research to plant breeding to ecophysiology.

The live event will take place on  Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 at 9 pm EST (Wednesday, November 18th, 12:30 pm Adelaide).

Interested? Please complete the linked submission form indicating your talk title,  preferred date (Nov 17/18 for the abiotic stress discussion), and provide a link to your video.
