Conserving Plant Biodiversity in a Changing World: A View from NW North America
University of Washington Botanic Gardens, Seattle, WA
March 13-14, 2012
We face an uncertain future – economically, politically, and climatically. Those concerned with managing, researching or protecting rare plants and their habitats need to be aware of these changes and have the necessary tools to effectively address them. We will have papers, both invited and contributed, that will engage all in a dialogue intended to raise questions and find solutions. Participants from throughout northwestern North America will contribute ideas and meet colleagues for future collaboration. More information at the conference website.
REGISTRATION OPENS OCTOBER 3, 2011.

The call for abstracts will be open until October 28th.
Note that we define change as not just climate, but also economic and political change.
