2014 BOTANY MEETING
Interdisciplinary Botany: How Related Scientific Fields Support Our Understanding of Native Plants
February 22-23, 2014
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson, AZ
Charles Darwin, in The Voyage of the Beagle, wrote at length about geology, animals, single-celled life, paleontology, plants, and anthropological observations as one great unified subject. The interrelationships between other scientific fields and botany have only expanded since Darwin’s time. The theme for the 11th annual 2014 Arizona Botany Meeting, jointly sponsored by the Arizona Native Plant Society and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, is “Interdisciplinary Botany.” Please plan to attend!
Presentations, poster sessions, luncheon, and an evening dinner and program will occur on Saturday, February 22, 2014. Field trips are scheduled for Sunday, February 23. Call for Presentations/Papers, click here.
Deadline to submit abstracts is December 24, 2013.
