Following a highly successful inaugural meeting at RBG Edinburgh in September 2014, we have decided to host a follow-on biennial meeting at the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens in conjunction with the new Sainsbury Lab. The second meeting will follow a similar format as in 2014, with a two-day event, notable plenary speakers, and a range of invited speakers touching on many areas of Plant Evolution research in the UK. There will of course be ample opportunity for submitted talks and a poster session, as well as a chance to tour the beautiful gardens, and visit Darwin’s herbarium.
We are in the final stages of coordinating a list of invited speakers, as well as settling on the final costs, but will be in a position to send these details out soon.
In the meantime please note these dates in your calendar, and do circulate to any interested colleagues who did not make it to the first meeting,
with best wishes,
Sam Brockington, Curator, Cambridge University Botanic Gardens
Beverley Glover, Director, Cambridge University Botanic Gardens
