Dear Taxacom

The program for the two day meeting on grasses has now been announced:


Growing the Grass Classification: Systematics, Ecology and Evolution
Celebration of Derek Clayton's 90th birthday
Linnean Society of London
18-19 July 2016

Human civilization depends on grasses, plants of the botanical family Poaceae. This meeting will bring together an international community of researchers and review the development of grass classifications and taxonomic databases, and their contributions to the study of evolution, anatomy, C4 photosynthesis, forage grass nutrition, and the global savanna biome. All welcome.

Kind regards
