The conference theme, Taxonomy for Plant Conservation — Ruia mai i Rangiātea aims to capitalise on the vast expertise of our two societies. There will be multiple upskilling workshops, three days of symposia, and a chance to explore Wellington’s forests and rugged coastlines on our five different full-day field trips. Registration, payments and abstract submissions are all open from today.
