Call for Field Trips

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

The Botanical Society of America (BSA) will hold its annual meeting in Austin, Texas from August 12-17, 2005. In addition to the BSA, other societies participating in the BOTANY 2005 conference will include: the American Bryological and Lichenological Society (ABLS), the American Fern Society (AFS), and American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT). The theme for BOTANY 2005 will be Learning from Plants. 

Members of all participating societies are encouraged to organize and lead scientific field trips at the annual meeting. Scientific field trips can be either theme-based or more general in scope. In addition, field trips can be single-day or multi-day events and typically take place on the days before or after the paper, poster, and symposium sessions.

Field trips are ticketed events and generally have limited enrollments. Careful consideration must be given to logistical issues. Field trip organizers will work closely with a Local Field Trip Coordinator, who will also solicit field trip ideas from local and regional botanists.
