We are pleased to inform UV4Plants members about two conference sessions focused on UV-B research. These sessions have been organized jointly with the European Society for Photobiology (ESP) and will be part of the ESP Congress in Pisa in September 2017. To help UV4Plants members attend we have agreed a reduced registration fee with ESP and are also offering several bursaries.
There are also other plant and non-plant photobiology symposia in the ESP Congress that may be of interest (see http://pisa2017.photobiology.eu).
