Travel grant deadline: Thursday 19th March 2020
Poster abstract deadline: Thursday 16th April 2020
The 45th New Phytologist Symposium will explore how human activities increasingly alter plant and soil fungal communities and the consequences of these changes.
Leading scientists will share insights into the biogeographic patterns, ecological/evolutionary dynamics, and ecosystem/biogeochemical consequences of plant–fungal co-invasions.
The symposium will take place over four days at the University of Campinas, Brazil, and include sessions organised by broad research topics. There will be dedicated time for discussions, poster sessions, selected poster talks and a field trip.
Next generation scientists 2020
