Dear taxacomers,

sorry for my earlier email without attachment. I forgot that taxacom does not allow attachments. The first circular of the fall meeting of the section Biodiversity & Evolution of the German Botanical Society, from September 16th-19th in Vienna is pasted below or you can access information
at http://biodiversitaet.univie.ac.at/

Best regards,

Dirk Albach


The Faculty Centre of Biodiversity, University of Vienna
the section Biodiversity and Evolution of the German Botanical Society

invite you to participate in the

19th International Symposium
“Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology”
of the German Botanical Society (DBG).

September 16th – 19th 2010
Vienna (Austria)

This symposium is intended to provide a stimulating exchange of botanists interested in the diverse aspects of plant evolution from algae and bryophyte to angiosperms, with morphological, karyological, phytochemical or molecular aspects.

We are looking forward to interesting talks and posters and to lively discussions. Since the following year awaits us with at least three large conferences (Biosystematics Berlin, Int. Bot. Congress Melbourne, DBG Botanist meeting Berlin), this meeting will allow us a more quiet exchange of ideas and discussions on the future of evolutionary and systematic botany.

We hope to attract researchers from all German-speaking institutions in the field and many of our friends from other countries. We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna in September 2010.

The symposium will be held at the Faculty Centre for Biodiversity, University of Vienna, Rennweg 14, in the heart of Vienna. The locality allows easy access to the Botanical Garden, the library and the herbarium of the University of Vienna. For detailed information please check the website http://biodiversitaet.univie.ac.at/
