Plant Biologists of South Florida Annual Meeting

March 18, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


This is an informal meeting in which all kinds of botanists share their work with others, and also come to meet folks from other parts of South Florida with similar interests.  Our host for this venue is Harvey Bernstein, who recently returned to the Miami area to take the position as head of Horticulture.

Coffee and morning snacks will be available at 9:30 am in the meeting room on the left as you enter Pinecrest Gardens.  Presentations will begin at 10:00 am, and we invite you to give a short talk (12 minutes, with a few for questions – total of 15 minutes) on your work.  We will break for lunch at 12:30 pm, and reconvene at 2 pm for more talks – the meeting will last until 4:00 pm, depending on the number of presentations.

PBSF has no dues and the meetings have no registration fees, but everyone attending will have to pay the $5 admission to the gardens. Participants should bring their lunches, and plan to picnic in the garden grounds or meeting room; there are also food items for purchase in the garden (cheeseburgers, etc.).

If you would like to give a presentation, please send your TITLE (only, abstracts neither required nor published) along with your name and affiliation to info@pbsf.org Presentations titles on the subject of South Florida plants and plant subjects by Plant Biologists of South Florida will be accepted from scientists, students, and others who love plants on a first-come, first-serve basis until we reach capacity.

If you are not already officially a member, please register as a member of the organization here.
