Be sure to book before mid-September to make the most of the early bird discount. If you are keen to come on the field trip to Springbrook then be sure to get in early as numbers are limited. Students, if you aren’t a member of the society already be sure to sign up as you will be eligible to apply for student assistance to attend ASBS conferences and the student prizes.
We invite you to the 2018 Australasian Systematic Botany Society conference to be held at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha, Toowong in the first week of December organised by the Queensland Herbarium.
The conference theme ‘Mind the Gap’ aims to highlight gaps in systematics be they biogeographic, taxonomic, funding, data or other. There will be a workshop on how to review taxonomic manuscripts and eFlora treatments, followed by three days of symposia and then a field trip.
Feel free to contact the organising committee by email if you have any queries: firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise we will keep subscribers to this web site up to date with developments, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter for announcements.
We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane towards the end of the year.
