15th Flora of Thailand Meeting, Chiang Mai, Thailand, 7-11 November 2011
The Flora of Thailand, whose aim is to produce a complete floristic treatment of the vascular flora, was initiated in 1963 and made its first appearance in 1970 (Volume 2 part 1). The Flora of Thailand meeting is an important forum for the exchange of taxonomic ideas and new research findings on Thai botany. The meeting has now become a large international gathering of researchers, contributors and postgraduate students working on the systematics, ecology, biogeography, evolution and conservation of plants within Thailand and surrounding countries.
The Flora of Thailand meeting is held every three years, alternating between Thailand and a collaborating country. The Forest Herbarium, and the Flora of Thailand Project Committee are pleased to welcome you to the 15th Flora of Thailand Meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The meeting venue and other details will be announced in the second circular.
