EcolChange seminar – Giacomo Puglielli about the triangle of abiotic stress tolerance of woody plants

Seminars of Department of Botany and Centre of Excellence EcolChange

Speaker: Dr. Giacomo Puglielli is a postdoctoral researcher at the Estonian University of Life Sciences, Institute of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences in Tartu. His work focuses on stress responses of woody plant species to abiotic factors such as water and light.

Title of the talk: The abiotic stress tolerance space of woody species

Time: Thursday, 29. October 2020 at 14.15

Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (Vaga auditorium), or virtual link in the MS Teams group (link for seeing the seminar online, without any logging in etc.).

Summary: Woody plant species’ ability to tolerate multiple abiotic stress factors is thought to be constrained by biological trade-offs among tolerances. However, there is still considerable uncertainty about the relationship between tolerances, and the limits on tolerance combinations. In this presentation, I propose a framework that partly resolves these uncertainties. (Link to the NewPhyt paper about the triangle, and also link to the accompanying blog post.)

For everyone to stay as healthy as possible, please be reminded that wearing a face mask is mandatory. Please bring your own mask. Most importantly, don’t attend when you feel sick.
