Dear IAWA members,Q-NET members,

We would like to invite you to the 4th Q-NET workshop on Tuesday, 21st June, 2022 at 2-5:30 pm CEST (GMT+2) on “Quantitative bark anatomy – state of the art and open questions” organized by Ilana Shtein and Alan Crivellaro.
Bark fulfills essential functions in the living plant and yields a wealth of raw materials, but the understanding of bark structure and function strongly lags behind that of wood. This workshop aims at transferring knowledge and creating scientific connections by outlining basic and recent advances in bark structure and raising research questions in this field.
The workshop will include periderm structure in woody plants (Simcha Lev-Yadun), phloem phenology (Jožica Gričar), methods in bark anatomy research (Marcelo Pace), bark functional ecology (Julieta Rosell), relationships between bark macroscopic appearance and its microscopic structure (Alexei Oskolski) and plenty of time for questions and discussion on future research directions.
