Besides sponsorship, GCP is participating in the ongoing InterDroughtIV Conference in Perth, Australia, which ends today. The conference was from 2nd to 6th September.

Our Director, Jean-Marcel Ribaut (profile, blogpost), made the keynote address. You can access his presentation on SlideShare, or below this post.

Just as in our early days, drought tolerance continues to be our number one priority. In keeping with this steadfastness of purpose, we're glad to report that we are republishing our popular manual on drought phenotyping. You can preview the articles for the forthcoming e-book to be published by Frontiers in Plant Physiology – an open-access publisher, consisent with our publication policy.
