The After Burn Part 2, Trees suffered over the summer with scorching temperatures and little rainfall and are showing symptoms of stress instead of bright colorful leaves. The trees that combated those harsh conditions have dropped their leaves due to stress or are holding onto less appreciated brown leaves. Drought symptoms can be seen by the less brilliant landscape and limited bold foliage in the Midwest. Below features images of the good, the bad, and the unfortunate of fall foliage

Zhang Lab is selected for the 2018 Community Science Program, The Zhang Lab is excited to have been awarded sequencing allocations through the Community Science Program (CSP) from Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI). The focus of the project is to investigate responses to heat stress and day length in photosynthetic cells. Several collaborators will be involved including two labs at the Danforth Center with the Umen Lab and the Nusinow Lab. For more information
NEW ROBOTIC SYSTEM TO ADVANCE RESEARCH
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/new-robotic-system-to-advance-research
Discover how the Gehan laboratory is working to understand plants’ response to severe temperatures, pests and pathogens.
research focuses on how to improve plant response to temperature stress in important crops. She recognized that having to use new sets of plants for each stress tolerance test significantly slows the pace, to stressors like viruses, pathogens, nutrient deficit, drought and temperature stress. These signatures of stress could then be used to develop screens at a lower cost,” said Gehan. STRESS TOLERANT CROPS

(Farm Press) Agricultural technology ‘absolutely essential’ to meet world food needs
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(farm-press)-agricultural-technology-absolutely-essential-to-meet-world-food-needs
With total food demand expected to increase by 70 percent in just under 40 years, and food prices forecast to rise as much as 100 percent, there is “enormous opportunity” for innovation and investment in agricultural technology, according to a recently published white paper from the Kauffman Foundation and the Danforth Center.
(Farm Press) Agricultural technology ‘absolutely essential’ to meet world food needs, by Hembree Brandon “We face the challenge of producing more food in the next 40 years than during the entire course of human history, on a planet showing signs of environmental stress. Investors in agricultural technology will be absolutely essential to meet this goal.' With total food demand expected, of human history, on a planet showing signs of environmental stress,” says the paper’s author, Suren G
