    "Thermal acclimation of photosynthesis: patterns and diversity of plant responses to warming"

    Presented by Danielle Way, Western University, Canada

    11 am, Large Conference Room, Bldg. 490

    Thursday, February 20, 2020, 11:00 am

    Hosted by: Alistair Rogers

    Climate change will increase global temperatures 3-4 ?C by 2100. This warming will affect photosynthesis, a temperature-sensitive process that helps dictate plant growth. Warming-induced shifts in photosynthesis also affect the global carbon cycle, mitigating or accelerating further climate change. Understanding how photosynthesis acclimates to future temperatures is therefore critical for accurately predicting the trajectory of future climate change, as well as for estimating plant productivity in a warmer world. I'll discuss how elevated growth temperatures impact photosynthesis, using meta-analyses, modeling and results from my lab, highlighting both what we know and the key questions that remain to be answered.
