In 2019, this course will consider responses to climate change focussing on light-x-temperature interaction and taking the perspective of scaling across levels of organisation from the molecular and physiological to the ecological; and in particular considering the time scales of plant response from the immediate or daily through acclimation and up-to adaptation to medium and long term environmental changes.

A diverse selection of inspiring young research leaders in their chosen fields will present their research in the context of how plants respond to climate change and debate the relative importance of mechanisms across levels of organisation within the plant and over different time scale.

Invited and local scientists will speak on their areas of expertise and discuss with students the implications of climate change for plants and plant communities. This year, Beatriz Fernandez-Marin (acclimation of photoprotection), Nacho Garcia-Plazaola (plant adaptation to survive in extreme environments), Frauke Pescheck (diurnal patterns of DNA repair and photoprotection), and Lizzie Wolkovich (phenological responses to climate change) will be among the international invited speakers giving an overview of their research fields.

Selected post doc and PhD students from the University of Helsinki will also give focussed lectures highlighting the mechanisms that underpin plant responses to abiotic stresses in a changing climate. These lecturers include; Alexey Shapiguzov (on fast responses of the photosynthetic machinery), Julia Krasensky-Wrzaczek (on the integration of day-length and temperature by photoreceptors), Craig Brelsford (on the cues controlling mechanisms of plant phenology), and Neha Rai (on the control of photoreceptors under changing light conditions).



To complete the course full attendance and active participation in the discussions is required plus short writing assignment.
