Taxonomy for Plant Conservation – Ruia mai i Rangiātea update

Ferns–Wellington Waterfront, by Christopher Neugebauer

Early bird registration and abstracts have now closed. So far, we have over 170 attendees registered and paid coming to the conference in November, about 25% of whom are crossing the ditch from Australian institutions to attend. We have also received about 80 abstracts. The scientific committee is now assessing the abstracts and hope to have word to everyone by the end of the month about their acceptance. We will do our best to honour special requests but cannot guarantee that they can be accommodated.

Keen to come to the conference but haven’t registered yet? It’s not too late! You can still register. Standard registration fees apply:

  • Society members (NZPCN or ASBS): $420
  • Non-members: $525
  • Students, unwaged or retired: $260
  • Single day: $260

Please continue to spread the word to your colleagues and in particular your students. The conference will be a great networking and professional opportunity for the more than two dozen students who have already registered to attend.

Or perhaps you have registered and paid for the conference but would now like to add a workshop, field trip or dinner to your registration? That’s easy too. Just go to the payment page, add the extra item(s) to your shopping cart, and pay. Remember to use your original registration code (your last name plus a number) so we know who the payment is for.

And don’t forget to check out our Other Events page—there’s a lot of other stuff happening just before, during and after the conference that might be of interest to you as you make your travel plans.

As always, for any questions, please get in contact with the conference organisers.
