Gordon Research Conference

Meeting Cycle

24 Months

Conference Description

Plant-herbivore interactions is an extraordinarily interdisciplinary field, historically drawing upon basic knowledge, techniques and inspiration from all of the biological sciences. Because plants and associated herbivores constitute more than half of the eukaryotic species inhabiting our world, understanding how plants and herbivores interact provides mechanistic insights and useful generalizations about the nature and maintenance of much of the Earth’s biological diversity.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Plant-Herbivore Interaction" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
