The Missouri Botanical Garden will host its 65th Annual Fall Symposium entitled "Biota of North America: what we know, what we don't know and what we're losing" on October 12-13, 2018.
This year's Symposium brings together a distinguished group of speakers actively working on increasing our understanding of species diversity and ecological interactions in North American ecosystems, as well the most pressing conservation issues they face. A surprising number and variety of North American species are quietly disappearing, yet scientists have only catalogued a small proportion of the total diversity of organisms. Our speakers will highlight the current status of our knowledge of North American species, showcase important ecological interactions at risk, and provide a perspective on future conservation actions. The program will be of interest to students of systematics, phylogeny, evolution, and conservation.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! For more information about the symposium, speakers, registration, local accommodations, posters and travel awards for students, please follow this link:
