On behalf of the Organizing Committee I am happy to present you the second
circular of the International Workshop on Stress Synergism in Plants -
Abiotic and Biotic Stress in Photosynthesis to be held in Tata between 23
and 26 August, 1998. The aim of the workshop is to provide a fostering
environment for discussion amongst scientists about various aspects of plant
stress research. Moreover, we hope that the workshop will provide an
excellent opportunity to exchange ideas of mutual interests and to discuss
the most recent results in detail concerning responses of photosynthesis and
plant productivity to various stress factors. The workshop will bring
together scientists interested in stress induced alterations of metabolic
processes related directly or indirectly to photosynthesis in plants and
autotrophic microorganisms.
With the hope of a  successful meeting let me wish you a pleasant stay in
