Besides the usual sections about plant hydraulics (cavitation resistance, Xylem function, methods, etc.), this edition will be focused on i) the role of Carbon starvation and Hydraulic failure in drought-induced tree mortality, and ii) the Genetic Basis of Drought Tolerance. The conference will be organized in different sections that will be announced very soon. We are also very pleased to announce as Keynote Speakers Prof.  Maurizio Mencuccini (CREAF, Barcelona, Spain), Prof. Henrik Hartmann (Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Germany), Prof. Federico Magnani (University of Bologna, Italy) and Dr. Christophe Plomion (INRA, France).

More than 90 scientists and students from 17 countries interested in these topics are already registered to join the Meeting and share their ideas, current achievements, experience, contributing to the enrichment of the international xylem and plant hydraulics community. Selected conference papers (peer-reviewed) will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Plant Hydraulics.

The meeting will be held in English and it will be structured in talks and poster sessions.
