Multi-scale phenomics: environmental characterization and data management
Title: Multi-scale phenomics: environmental characterization and data management
Time: 9:00-12:00, 14:00-18:00, December 17-18
Place: Science Building, Room A201
Speaker: Francois Tardieu, French National Institute for Agricultural Research
Day 1, 17th December, Monday
9:00 – 10:00 Phenomics at different scales, from organ to networks of fields, the importance of environmental characterization and of a proper data management.
Cycle duration, a key feature for meta analyses
10:00 – 12:00 How to estimate cycle duration, thermal time, unifying phenological stages, consequences on light interception.Exercise Thermal time.
14:00 – 16:00 Energy balance, evaporative demand - Canopy temperature.
16:15 – 18:00 Computer exercise, transpiration. Penman-Monteith equation.
What are we measuring with canopy temperature, when is a cool temperature favorable?
Day 2, 18th December, Tuesday
Intercepted light, stomatal control and leaf growth
9:00 – 12:00 Monteith equation (interception/ efficiency).
Its use in a high thourghput contextStomatal control and growth, water deficit, WUE.
Principles for data organization of environmental and phenomic data
14:00 – 17:00 Identification of sensors, plants, plots. Ontologies for environmental data
Generating metadata based on semantic web
Francois Tardieu, senior scientist in INRA, France; group leader in INRA LEPSE. His main work deals with the modelling of plant responses to environmental conditions, especially water deficit: stomatal control, leaf growth, root growth in relation with hydraulic and chemical signalling. Since 2000, he has developed an approach aiming at modelling the genetic variability of plant responses to environmental cues linked to climate changes, by combining ecophysiological modelling, high throughput phenotyping and genetic analyses.
