The Biology of CAM Plants: April 9-13, 2018


Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) photosynthesis is a principal carbon concentrating mechanism in terrestrial plants and is the major means by which land plants achieve superior levels of resource-use efficiency. As a result, CAM plants are increasingly recognized as among the world’s most important crops for food, forage, fiber, fodder and fuel and as critically important foundational species in tropical sub-humid, semi-arid, and arid ecosystems.

This international meeting will convene a diverse group of scientists to share new discoveries on the evolution, ecology, functional biology, genomics and engineering of CAM traits and species.
