Gordon Research Seminar — Plant-Herbivore Interaction
25 Feb 2023 - 26 Feb 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Plant-herbivore interactions have evolved in response to co-evolutionary dynamics and selection driven by abiotic conditions. The seminar will discuss the latest technological and theoretical advances aiming to unravel the evolutionary forces that determine plant-herbivore interactions, their context-dependency and potential applications to protect natural ecosystems and generate more sustainable agricultural practices. In the context of our unprecedent climate crisis, global warming is expected to affect plant interactions with beneficial and antagonistic herbivores. The GRS 2023 specifically welcomes contributions on the complexity of plant-herbivore interactions at both individual and community levels in our rapidly changing environment. Finally, in addition to the sessions dedicated to oral and poster presentations, the 2023 GRS will offer a mentoring session where young researchers will have the opportunity to discuss career planning, oriented towards academia or the private sector, with experienced researchers.

Gordon Research Conference — Plant-Herbivore Interaction
26 Feb 2023 - 03 Mar 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Plant-herbivore interactions are the conduit for energy flow from the sun to the diversity of life on the planet. Understanding the genetic and chemical mechanisms underlying these interactions inform fundamental biological principles and hold the key for solving applied problems. Recent advances show that plant-herbivore interactions are at the center of networks of diverse communities, with the macroevolution of chemical defense a driver of plant and herbivore diversity. Variability in defenses affects antagonistic and mutualistic interactions, many of which are relevant for conservation. At the same time, sensory biology of herbivores operates at different spatial scales, with consequences for the effects of plant resistance in communities and in pest management applications. With each decade we are getting closer to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation, and current work in plant-herbivore interactions is revealing surprising rules that govern evolution in ecological communities. The meeting will incorporate the interactions between plants and their vertebrate and invertebrate herbivores, including pollinators and seed dispersers, and associated microbes across wild and human dominated systems. Sessions will highlight diverse speakers with diverse approaches to stimulate discussion about paths to push the discipline forward. The 15th Gordon Research Conference on Plant-Herbivore Interactions (GRC PHI) will cover a wide range of topics, including sensory biology by plants and herbivores across scales, evolution of plant defenses, multispecies interactions, applications to pest management and climate change, and how new tools are changing our discipline.
