Celebrating 30 Years of the Flora of the Bahamas: Conservation and Science Challenges

October 30 - 31, 2012

Miami, Florida

The Bahamas National Trust, the College of the Bahamas, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and Florida International University are putting together a symposium entitled:

"Celebrating 30 Years of the Flora of the Bahamas: Conservation and Science Challenges" that will take place between October 30th and 31st, 2012 in Nassau. This email is to invite you to attend this event.

Sponsored by Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and the US National Science Foundation the latest comprehensive flora of The Bahama Archipelago was published in 1982. This project was initiated by William T. Gillis, but the final work was authored by Donovan Correll and Helen Correll (illustrated by Priscilla Fawcett). Since its publication, 30 years ago, this flora has played a major role in Bahamian education, research, and conservation as it is still the best available catalogue for plant biodiversity of this archipelago.

The first announcement for the symposium can be found at:
