Call for Field Trips

Botany 2004 represents the annual meeting of four professional societies, including: the American Bryological and Lichenological Society (ABLS), the American Fern Society (AFS), the American Society of Plant Taxonomists (ASPT), and the Botanical Society of America (BSA). The conference will be held in Snowbird, Utah from July 31 to August 5, 2004, and the theme for Botany 2004 will be “Alpine Diversity: Adapted to the Peaks.” Members of all participating societies are encouraged to organize and lead scientific field trips at the annual meeting. Scientific field trips can be either theme-based or more general in scope. In addition, field trips can be single-day or multi-day events and typically take place on the days before or after the paper, poster, and symposium sessions.

Field trips are ticketed events and generally have limited enrollments. Careful consideration must be given to logistical issues. Field trip organizers will work closely with a Local Field Trip Coordinator, who will also solicit field trip ideas from local and regional botanists.
