ARC Discovery Success

We were very happy to have been successful in the latest ARC Discovery round! Our project is entitled “To grow or to store: do plants hedge their bets?” and will investigate a long-standing question about the function of perennial plants: how much of the carbon taken up by photosynthesis is used immediately for growth, and how much is kept in reserve as insurance against future stress? My co-CI’s are Remko Duursma (HIE), Roddy Dewar (Australian National University) and Mat Williams (University of Edinburgh).
