The Carnegie climate change experiments @ Stanford

In 2021, we have launched a new field station on Stanford campus that can host 30,000 Arabidopsis thaliana pots. This station has 27 sections distributed in 9 rows x 3 segments equipped with a sprinkler systems that are independently programmed to simulate rainfall patterns. This experiment--inspired by the legendary Jasper Ridge Global Change Experiments led by Chris Field [1]--aims to test the ability of genetically-distinct A. thaliana populations to withstand different climate pressures [2].
