“Moving from the lab to the field: putting ecology and ecophysiology in a new framework”
18-20 March 2013 at Plant Sciences (IBG-2), Forschungszentrum Jülich

In the field of plant science much of our understanding of plant growth, development and metabolism has been derived from studying model plants grown under controlled conditions. In the field of ecology we often find a combination of studies performed under field conditions with smaller more mechanistic studies under controlled greenhouse or climate-chamber conditions. In a world experiencing major global change, we need to better integrate our understanding of plant performance across scales, including knowing to what extent results obtained under controlled conditions are compatible with those obtained in the field.
