Presented by: 
Professor Zhihong Xu
Date: 
Wed 9 Apr, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Venue: 
Seminar Room Room 502, Level 5, Bldg 49 Advanced Engineering Building, St Lucia Campus

Prof. Xu has been Director of Environmental Futures Research Institute at Griffith University, Nathan, Brisbane, Queensland, since 2009. His lecture explores how tree water-use efficiency (WUE) has increased in the past century, but has not translated into globally enhanced tree growth. The impact of climate change, particularly atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]), temperature and water, on plant photosynthesis, WUE and tree growth remains elusive. 

Catering will be provided after the seminar.
