Pollution and climate change hazards will be the central theme of the international event “Air Pollution Threats to Plant Ecosystems” co-organized by Committee on Air Pollution Effects Research on Mediterranean Ecosystems (CAPERmed), the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) and the International Cooperative Programme on the Effects of Air Pollution on Natural Vegetation and Crops (ICP Vegetation).
The conference combines for the first time three events: the 4th CAPERmed meeting, the 3rd International Conference on “Ozone and Plant Ecosystems” and the 30th biennial international conference of the IUFRO Research Group on “Air Pollution and Climate Change”. Therefore, the event will serve as an excellent example of effective international collaboration in research on air pollution and plant ecosystems.
The main themes of the conference will be:
- Environmental status and health of Mediterranean plant ecosystems
- From the cell to the ecosystem: monitoring, biomonitoring, mechanisms and modelling of the effects of air pollution and climate change on plants.
Since 1 September 2019 the call for registrations to participate is open. The deadline for submitting abstracts for the event is 15 December 2019.
