International Conference Plant Biology CS 2019


Every three years, the Czech Society of Experimental Plant Biology and Plant Physiology section of the Slovak Botanical Society jointly organize meetings, which are hosted by alternating Czech and Slovak university cities.

The last conference (titled Plant Biology CS, 2019) took place in České Budějovice (at the joint campus of the University of South Bohemia and Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences) from 25th to 30th August 2019. The first two days were devoted to PhD student meeting, the rest of the time to regular conference.


The program, which was attended by more than 300 students and scientists from all around the world, was divided into twenty thematic sections dealing with a wide range of plant biology issues, such as reproduction, water management, nutrition and nutrient transport, photosynthesis, genetic manipulation, breeding or adaptation of plants to the environment (their adaptation to climate change) or defense against pathogens or pests.
