Jepson Herbarium 50th Anniversary Celebration and Scientific Symposium:

Discovery, Communication, and Conservation of Plant Biodiversity in California

June 16-18, 2000

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Jepson Herbarium we are sponsoring
a symposium: Discovery, Communication, and Conservation of Plant
Biodiversity in California.  We have invited a broad spectrum of experts to
discuss the needs and means to refine and expand our knowledge of plant
diversity, and to communicate information about the California flora among
biological consultants, government agency planners, conservation
biologists, academic researchers, private land owners, and the general
public.  Topics will include the roles of field exploration and systematics
for discovery of new biodiversity, the synthesis and distribution of
floristic information, and identification of current challenges in
conservation of the California flora.  Nationwide integration of biologists,
their ideas and research is of immediate importance in our current
environment of changing landscapes and increasing urban development
and resource use.

Please join us for this gala weekend celebration June 16 - 18 , 2000. The
weekend program will include an open house at the herbarium, scientific
symposium, 50th Anniversary banquet and botanical field trips.
