These are posts from the 2019 ASBS–NZPCN Joint Conference, Taxonomy for Plant Conservation – Ruia mai i Rangiātea held in Wellington.

Conference registration opening next week!

We invite you to the 2019 Australasian Systematic Botany Society and New Zealand Plant Conservation Network joint conference to be held at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, New Zealand in the last week of November.

Check out the recently updated conference website to get all the important details about conference dates, venue, accommodation, programme, keynote speakers, field trips, workshops, silent auction, and more!

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.

Start planning now! Early bird registration opens next week. Places in workshops and field trips are limited, so register early to get your top choices.

Feel free to contact the organising committee by email if you have any queries:, otherwise we will keep subscribers to this web site up to date with developments, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for announcements.

We look forward to seeing you in Wellington in November!
