International Symposium on Plant Photobiology ISPP 2019
Light is a key resource for plants as it fuels photosynthesis. Thus, light availability is of great importance to plants throughout their life cycle. To gain information about the light environment, plants possess light receptors that cover the perception of the complete light spectrum, including light invisible for the human eye (far-red and ultra-violet light). The information sensed by these light receptors is utilized to optimally grow during day-night cycles, and in sub-optimal light conditions, such as shaded areas and high-light sun flecks. Plant photobiology research focuses on the perception of light by plants, the developmental adaptations that a changing light environment causes and the mechanistic and genetic basis of these adaptations. The ISPP is a biannual meeting where the world’s leaders as well as upcoming talents in the field gather to share their latest results and discuss future directions.
