Florida trip/ Botanical meeting
Sorry Tom, I thought you were already aware of this meeting. Its put
on by the Botanical Society of America (the people who put out
American Journal of Botany), American Society of Plant Taxonomists,
American Fern Society and the American Bryological and Lichenological
Society. Its a professional meeting and will cover a variety of
topics, not just aquatic plants (I plan to give a talk on my research
on Southeast Asian gingers). If you want to present your research
(talk or poster) you have to submit an abstract by April 1.
The meeting is from July 26-31.
Go to http://www.2003.botanyconference.org/ for more details. It
looks like they are still organizing everything since they don't have
the field trips and workshops listed yet. I'm guessing with the
aquatic theme they will have at least a couple aquatic oriented field
trips, but I'd bet they have several terrestrial too.
I'm sure that once all the abstracts are submitted and the trips are
organized they will list the full program. So you could always wait
until then to decide if you will go or not.
P.S. Even though I directed this towards Tom, I sent this to the list
incase anyone else might have interest in the meeting. Like I said
above, its a scientific meeting, so the presentations will be
directed towards a scientific audience, not towards a horticultural
