Department Seminars

NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 situation, all EE seminars which were scheduled prior to September 2020 have been cancelled. We will keep you notified as to when/if those seminars will be rescheduled. Thank you for understanding. Stay healthy!

Environmental and Climate Sciences Department (ECSD) seminars are typically scheduled on Thursdays at 11 a.m. in the Large Conference Room in Bldg. 490. Special times, dates, and locations are indicated on the schedule.

These seminars are all open to the public. Seminar attendees who do not have a BNL ID badge should arrive up to 30 minutes prior to the start of the seminar and check-in at the Main Gate. A government-issued photo ID is required at check in. Inform the gate attendee that you are here for the Environmental and Climate Sciences Department seminar (ECSD seminar).

For other details, or to schedule a seminar, contact the Seminar Committee.

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

    Presented by Danielle Way, Western University, Canada

    2:30 pm, Large Conference Room, Bldg. 490

    Thursday, October 1, 2020, 2:30 pm

    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.
