Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and partners are hosting a virtual symposium and workshop, Conserving Exceptional Plants: Cryobiotechnology and the Model of Oaks, on October 19-21, 2021. The three-day symposium will feature experts covering:

  1. What exceptional plants are and the use of cryobiotechnology as an alternative conservation strategy for these species;
  2. The multifaceted ways cryobiotechnologies can be applied, using oaks as a model group for what is being done and the potential for the future
  3. A workshop demonstrating methods used for banking exceptional plant tissues, using oaks as a model for methods that can be applied broadly to exceptional species. Short contributed papers will also be welcomed. If you would like to receive further information on the symposium, please register your interest on the event webpage.
