International Symposium on Physiological Principles and Their Application to Fruit Production

ISHS Secretariat
International Symposium on Physiological Principles and Their Application to Fruit Production

An outstanding group of fruit crop physiologists is retiring including (in alphabetical order) Ted DeJong, University of California-Davis; James Flore, Michigan State University; Duane Greene, University of Massachusetts; Alan Lakso, Cornell University; John Palmer, Plant and Food; and James Syvertsen, University of Florida.

We have decided to convene an ISHS symposium sponsored by the Environmental Physiology of Fruit Crops working group to honor our retiring colleague and to review and assess the progress we have made in fruit crop physiology. We invite you to attend and help recognize their collective contribution to fruit science.

The symposium will be held in Geneva, New York, USA from March 26 to March 28, 2014.

The symposium will bring together scientists who are working on whole plant physiology to discuss the progress which has been made in the last 40 years and to map the work for the next 20 years. This meeting will focus not only on the advances in knowledge of fruit crop physiology but also the application of physiological principles in fruit production.

To learn more about the symposium or to submit an abstract or to register please visit the symposium website - see http://www.ishs.org/symposium/517 for all details.

I hope we will see you in Geneva in March 2014.

Best Regards
Terence Robinson tlr1@cornell.edu and Lailiang Cheng lc89@cornell.edu (Conveners)
