DPPN LI6400/LI6800 gas exchange workshop

The LI6400/LI6800 is used widely to determine photosynthetic parameters by measuring CO2 and H2O. Though not a high throughput phenotyping device it is considered the standard benchmark for photosynthesis measurements. This requires a profound understanding of the li6400/li6800 for who is interested in photosynthesis related measurements in general. Therefore we offer a 2 day workshop to enable proper standard operation and understanding of the devices. For those familiar to the li6400 also the introduction only to the li6800 can be considered.

This was an internal workshop for DPPN members.
