The DFG research unit FOR2581 has held its 2nd international symposium on plant quantitative morphodynamics.

About 90 participants discussed recent advances in understanding how plants grow and shape their organs and how these shapes adapt and evolve.

The symposium featured 35 talks by invited speakers and speakers selected from the abstracts as well as 35 posters on the following topics:

  • Mechanics and patterning of plants growth
  • Quantifying cell and tissue growth
  • Modeling plant growth
  • Evolution of plant form

A big thanks to everyone for making this event such as success!
