The Gesneriad Research Center at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is
pleased to announce
*World Gesneriad Research Conference 2010*
WGRC 2010 will be a three-day scientific meeting to be held in Sarasota,
Florida in September or October 2010 focused on research in
Gesneriaceae. Experts and students are invited to make presentations
about research on Gesneriaceae and to discuss, promote and plan for
continued research-based advancements in this important plant family.
Plant enthusiasts and horticulturalists will also be encouraged to
attend the presentations and to
participate in discussion groups. Associated activities such as field
trips will be a major part of WGRC 2010; these activities will be open
to all conference attendees.
We are soliciting ideas and proposals for activities at WGRC 2010.
Possible topics of interest include systematics, biogeography and
ancestral range history, taxonomy and monography, pollination biology
and ecology, conservation, horticulture, etc.
