Plant scientists on 'Women in Science'Weeding the Gems

Why are there so few women at the highest levels of academia, for example as Heads of School, Directors of Institutes, or Fellows of the Royal Society? And do the initiatives that promote women in science do a good job?

Storify: Tweets from FESPB-EPSO Plant Congress 2012 (and Freiburg photos)

How will plant biodiversity deal increasing CO2? How can plants help us to deal with global problems such as energy production and malnutrition? During the FESPB-EPSO Plant Congress 2012 in Freiburg these questions and more were tackled.

 

Here is a tweetstream from the conference. http://storify.com/rbastow/epso-fespb-plant-congres-2012

 

You can download the conference schedule here: http://www.plant-biology-congress2012.de/programme/

 

Teaching Tools in Plant Biology artist in residence Tom Donald spent the week photographing Freiburg, including the stained glass inside the Freiburg Munster. See if you you recognize any of these sights:

Teaching Workshop participants - contact me if you want the resources discussed.

 

Freiburg is a beautiful city and we thank the university, staff and students for hosting this inspring conference.
