Pine Rockland & Tropical Botany Conference 2018

This is a past event.

Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 8:00am to 5:00pm


Co-organized by FIU faculty, this conference includes FIU's Tropical Botany Symposium and Fairchild Tropical Garden's Connect to Protect Network.

From the event website:

"Habitat destruction, climate change and inadequate resourcing continue to diminish the extent and integrity of globally imperiled pine rocklands. This year’s theme, 'Expanding the Footprint', will focus on reversing this trend by restoration of prior converted pine rocklands. ... Experts in many areas will present findings on the biology as well as conservation issues facing tropical forests, exploited plants, and people."
