Look back part-1

The opening with the keynote  lecture of Prof. Malcolm Bennett of the University of Nottingham titled ‘Uncovering the hidden half of plants using new advances in root phenotyping’. Prof. Bennett is not only a well-known authority on the (molecular) biology of root development; he is also leading efforts to non-invasively image root responses using advanced phenotyping methods.

Look back part-2

The second part with reflections of the discussions and the lecture, titled ‘Underground plant traits: many mysteries to be solved’, presented by dr Eric Visser (Radboud University Nijmegen). Dr Visser is associate professor of Experimental Plant Ecology and is intrigued by plant roots, particularly the interplay between a root system and its environment and the plasticity with which plant roots can respond to changes in the environment.
