The annual Botany conference will be held next week in Rochester, Minnesota. This is one of the premier annual scientific meetings of botanical and plant biology societies; the societies meeting jointly at Botany include the Botanical Society of America, American Society of Plant Taxonomists, American Fern Society, International Association of Plant Taxonomists, Society of Herbarium Curators, and Canadian Botanical Association.
The Sessa lab will have a great showing at this year’s meeting! My students and I are involved in a total of nine talks and posters; you can find our abstracts at the links below.
We are also organizing the exhibit booth for the American Fern Society – if you will be at the meetings, stop by and visit us! You can purchase your very own, personalizible Lego mini figure, sporting the AFS logo on the torso.
