How climate change influences growing seasons length in woody plants and survival of flowers, the substances that influence shape changes of plastids, and the proteins that spur phloem differentiation are in the research focus of the four plant scientists who will receive the science prices of the German Society for Plant Sciences (DBG) this year. Dr. Constantin Mario Zohner, Dr. Jessica Lee Erickson, Dr. Moisés Expósito Alonso and Dr. Eva-Sophie Wallner will get their awards during the Botanikertagung, the International Plant Science Conference in Rostock, Germany. From 16th to 18th September, the four will present their research results to the more than 420 conference participants.
The DBG supports journalists searching for plant experts. Please feel free to send an inquiry with a short description about the research topic to Redaktion[at]deutsche-botanische-gesellschaft.de. We are going to forward your request to the expert who can answer your question.
The DBG informs about the prizes awarded and the outstanding works of young scientists in its media releases. Since 2007 the Phycology Section chooses an alga of the year which they introduce to the public audience.
More releases can be accessed via the archives.
