Conferences and Seminars
Annual Fall Symposium


The Missouri Botanical Garden will host its 65th Annual Fall Symposium on October 12-13, 2018, entitled “Biota of North America: what we know, what we don’t know and what we’re losing.” 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. Learn more
