Conferences and Seminars
Annual Systematics Symposium

SymposiumFor the first time, the Missouri Botanical Garden is joining with the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center to host a combined Fall Symposium, organized by a joint committee, with half the program to be held at each institution over three days. This Symposium – the Garden’s 62nd Annual and the Danforth Center’s 17th Annual – will highlight our common interests and diverse approaches to understanding biodiversity, pairing speakers from our respective disciplinary communities to address different adaptive strategies in plants.

The title of this year’s Symposium is From Darwin to Borlaug: Biocomplexity in Natural and Agricultural Systems. Learn more
