We are pleased to announce that the international conference entitled "Air Pollution threats to Plant Ecosystems" will be held in Paphos (Cyprus) on May 4-8, 2020.
This international event is co-organized by the Committee on Air Pollution Effects Research on Mediterranean Ecosystems (CAPERmed), the International Union of Forest Research Organization (IUFRO) and the International Cooperative Programme on Effects of Air Pollution on Natural Vegetation and Crops (ICP Vegetation).
The CAPERmed IV meeting will be held on 4-5 May 2020, back-to-back with the 3rd International Conference on "Ozone and Plant Ecosystems" and the 30th international biennial conference of the IUFRO Research Group on "Air pollution and climate change" on 4-8 May 2020.
Air pollution and climate change remain a persistent threat to plant ecosystems, urging for international cooperation and unified research efforts. The 2020' conference, for the first time combining three events, will serve as an excellent example of effective international collaboration in the research of air pollution and plant ecosystems. Do not miss this cornerstone of international science.
We are excited to invite all the experts in air pollution and climate change impacts on plant ecosystems to this international conference.
