The XV Portuguese-Spanish Plant Water Relations Symposium (Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2022) gathers researchers, practitioners, stakeholders and students every two years, since 1993. The Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2022 will focus on the theme “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem”.

Plant Water Relations Lisbon 2022 assembles an inspiring scientific program bringing together contributions and discussions on sustainable water use in agricultural and forest systems for increasing plant productivity and other ecosystem services.

Furthermore, researchers, politicians, and practitioners will discuss, in a special session, the best water management strategies coping with future warmer conditions and scarcer water resources. Finally, a satellite workshop, will address novel and critical plant phenotyping methodologies related to water relations.
