> 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
