Next seminar within the cycle “WATSON Wednesdays” will take place the 11 January 2023 at 12:30 CET.
Our speaker will be Adrià Barbeta Margarit affiliated to the Department of Evolutionary Biology, Ecology and Environmental Sciences of the University of Barcelona.
He will talk about “Isotopic discrepancies in plant water pools and their sources“
The identification of plant water sources using isotope-based approaches can be complicated because of poorly understood natural and extraction-related fractionation processes. I will present how unexpected results led us to the development of a new extraction technique for woody plants that provides reliable estimates of the isotopic composition of plant water sources.
