>> scientific conferences to lectures for the general public, exhibitions, and
>> guided tours. The complete list can be found on the Linnaeus 2007 site (

>> "http://florabase.dec.wa.gov.au/events/"http://florabase.dec.wa.gov.au/events/)

>> Other WA events will include a Photography workshop and Science-Systematics
