PS Webinar Series: The cellular biochemistry of the diatom pyrenoid »

12pm 10 November 2021

The slow kinetics and poor substrate specificity of the key photosynthetic CO2-fixing enzyme Rubisco have prompted the repeated evolution of Rubisco containing compartments known as pyrenoids in diverse algal lineages and carboxysomes in prokaryotes.

E&E Webinar: Investigating effects of social context on complex cooperative behavior »

12pm 21 October 2021

Social behaviors are essential to the lives of many animals. “Complex” social behaviors are interactions among conspecifics take many forms, including repeated associations with particular individuals, interactions that differ across different contexts, or coordinated behaviors among many individuals.

PS Webinar Series: The evolution of cell specific gene expression for C4 photosynthesis »

3.30pm 20 October 2021

Prior to the discovery of C4 photosynthesis by Hal Hatch and Roger Slack in 1966 there were clues that some plants partitioned photosynthesis between specific leaf cell types.

PS Transcendence Webinar Series: Quantitative links between gas exchange of leaves and photosynthetic biochemistry »

12pm 13 October 2021

Mathematical models of leaf photosynthesis provide a mechanistic base for predicting and assessing changes in photosynthetic CO2 fixation in different environments and provide a means of scaling predictions from leaves to canopies and regions.
