2nd Call for Funding: John Ferguson – University of Nottingham.

Project Title Leveraging optical topography for rapid reconstructions of 3D leaf surfaces to address key questions in plant biology. Total Fund Requested – £25,000.00 Project Summary Introduction and Overview The surfaces of leaves are critical for regulating plant-ecosystem interactions. Micro-morphological structures, such as ridges, veins, stomata, and trichomes define overall leaf surface texture. This texture…
