Professional exhibition embraces new tech
    2017-July-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

The XIX International Botanical Congress Professional Exhibition, which is showcasing the latest international research in the field of botany, is an essential part of the congress. It not only strengthens exchanges and cooperation in the botanical sciences around the globe but also provides a clearer view of the botanical industry for the public.

All kinds of environmentally friendly technology, ranging from soilless culture and vertical planting models, to cutting-edge charging technology for the electromobile, can be found presently in Hall 2 of the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center.

The hall is hosting a total of 108 standard 9-square-meter booths and 24 specially decorated booths of over 36 square meters. Nearly 110 exhibitors from 15 countries and regions, including China’s mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan, the U.S., the U.K., Australia, the Netherlands, Israel and South Korea, are all participating in the exhibition.

It covers renowned enterprises in periodical and magazine publishing as well as the scientific equipment, medical, landscaping, software and biotech industries. The number of exhibitors at this year’s congress has already reached a record high.

Using lights to replace sunshine for plants in soilless culture

The booth of Fujian Sanan Sino-Science Photobiotech Co. has attracted numerous visitors from home and abroad with fresh vegetables shining under the lights at the exhibition.

The company is providing a system solution for plant factories. In a plant factory, staff can control the temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, nutrients and other elements with a computer. Therefore, vegetables can be exposed to different lights to optimize high-yield production. This process doesn’t require soil and is pollution-free in a real sense.

They have built a functioning vertical planting model, “a small plant factory”, complete with a water supply, drainage, power supply and lights, in their exhibition area. According to Cai-Li Yang of Fujian Sanan Sino-Science Photobiotech Co., they design different kinds of lights to cater to the needs of different plants and provide the precise light conditions these plants need to grow indoors.

Big data provides public

information retrieval

Cyber security is a hot issue in the era of big data. In the field of biology, the sharing of data resources has become a matter of common sense. The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), founded by governments and organizations around the world, is continuously providing biodiversity data.

GBIF is also represented at the XIX International Botanical Congress. Whether you are a professor or an ordinary citizen, you can download basic information about the biological population, including names, habitats and development process, by logging onto GBIF.org.

The species information not only offers easy access to biological resources, but intuitively reflects changes in the global biological environment. At the same time, observing the migration of biological populations via big data can serve as a reference for the study of climate change and prevent ecological problems like biological invasion.
