    Project Details

    Description

    Climates are changing and becoming more variable, altering planting regimes and disrupting local adaptation. The genetic basis of climate adaptation can be dissected by phenotyping mapping populations in growth facilities that replicate the predictable seasonal growing conditions and weather stress events. This proposal will provide chambers with multispectral LED light, temperature, humidity, and watering controls that simulate dynamic climate environments with environmental stress events at key developmental times. Cameras will be equipped on each light shelf to provide real-time phenotyping of growth and development. Trait and association genetic data will be shared in a public plant phenomics database.
