The Global Plant Council, member of the global initiative “AIM for Climate“, invites you to join us for an the second webinar of the “Plant Science-Based Solutions for Climate Change” webinar series. This second installment, featuring: Lisa Ainsworth (University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign) and Amanda Cavanagh (University of Essex).

Lisa Ainsworth will delve into the crucial research surrounding the effects of increasing carbon dioxide and ground-level ozone on crop production. Her insights offer valuable perspectives on how to mitigate climate change’s impact on agriculture.

Amanda Cavanagh’s work is equally impactful, focusing on the biochemical limitations of photosynthesis, the regulation of photorespiration and photosynthesis during abiotic stress, natural variations in carbon assimilation, and innovative approaches to enhance photosynthesis and increase crop yield.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable knowledge. Register now to secure your spot and be a part of the conversation that can shape a more sustainable future.

Speakers: Lisa Ainsworth (University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign) and Amanda Cavanagh (University of Essex)
Moderators: Liana Acevedo-Siaca (Michigan State University) and Isabel Mendoza (Global Plant Council)
