A group of 21 plant UV-researchers came together on June 27 and 28, 2017 for a discussion-intensive workshop at Czech Globe in the south Moravian town of Brno in the Czech Republic. The workshop was organised by Drs. Otmar Urban (Czech Globe, Czech Republic) and Marcel Jansen (University College Cork, Ireland). The workshop brought together plant scientists with an interest in cross-talk between UV-B and other environmental drivers.
