«Plant Water Relations: New Solutions for Ancient Challenges»

Dear colleagues and participants in the XVI Spanish–Portuguese International Symposium on Plant Water Relations,

The XVI Spanish–Portuguese International Symposium on Plant Water Relations of the Spanish and Portuguese Society of Plant Biology to be held in 2024 constitutes a meeting point for researchers in this field. Plant–water relations deal with the control of the hydration of plant cells, including water uptake from the soil, water transport throughout the plant and its loss through transpiration in the leaves. The Symposium slogan is “Water relations in plants: new solutions for ancient challenges”. In this context, the Symposium covers the following issues: i) water relations in natural vegetation, ii) genetic and molecular aspects of plant–water relations, iii) water stress in crop plants, iv) new methodologies for the study of plant–water relations, and v) water movement throughout the plant. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the most outstanding contributions of this Symposium, which aims to advance the field of plant­–water relations.
