Your participation needed: Global Plant Phenotyping Survey 2020/21
For the past six years, IPPN and EMPHASIS have carried out their bi-annual "Plant Phenotyping Surveys". They cover basic and advanced questions related to plant phenotyping for the purpose of assessing the status of global plant phenotyping and emerging fields. The surveys address participants from all geographic regions and in all professional disciplines in any way related to plant phenotyping.
The survey data provide the primary source of information for our plant phenotyping knowledge base, informing us about the topics and issues inherent to the international and regional (sub-)communities, in academia and industry. This also helps us to identify potential gaps and understand the demands of the community in terms of required services and tools.
Results are being made available on the IPPN homepage, and, in the past, survey results have been extensively used for analysing the global status of plant phenotyping (such as in this review by Yang et.al.).
Participating in these surveys empowers everyone who contributes to add to the big picture of how phenotyping is being used and viewed.
The Plant Phenotyping Survey 2020/21 is published with the release of this newsletter and will hopefully find its way from here to all relevant stakeholders around the world.
Please disseminate the link to this survey among any relevant audiences, and please feel free to use it in any reasonable context. The more people take part in this survey, the more relevant the obtained results will become.
