In support of field biologists, researchers, field naturalists, faculty members, and students, and artists with interests in the natural history sciences, Eagle Hill has long been recognized as offering hard-to-find seminars which provide important opportunities for training and meeting others who are dedicated to continually learning more about natural history. These seminars are of special interest because they focus on the natural history of one of North America's most spectacular and pristine natural areas, the coast of eastern Maine ... from Acadia National Park to Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge and beyond.
August 11-25, 2019
Each year the Botanical Society of America, the Torrey Botanical Society, and the Philadelphia Botanical Club sponsor a field meeting in an area of the northeastern United States. The 2019 meeting will explore Adams County, Ohio and will be housed at Shawnee Lodge & Conference Center.

The 4th International Brachypodium Conference is on 25-28 June 2019, in Huesca, Spain. You can visit our 4th IBC 2019 web site to get updated information on the conference. The registration period is open from January to May 2019.
The 51st annual meeting of the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries, Inc. (CBHL) will be held in Phoenix, May 14-17, 2019. The meeting, “Adapt & Flourish in a Changing Climate,” will be hosted by the Desert Botanical Garden.
In Partnership with the American Museum of Natural History and the Southwestern Research Station, we are proud to announce the 21st installment of The Bee Course. The Bee Course is a ten day workshop held at the Southwestern Research Station in Portal, Arizona from August 18th through the 28th, 2019. The course is designed to provide biologists interested in pollinators with the tools and knowledge necessary to collect, process, and to begin to identify bee specimens. We encourage all interested parties to apply. For more information, including instructions on how to apply, a list of this year’s instructors, and course testimonials, please visit our new website at www.thebeecourse.org
Please join us at the World Food Prize Foundation and the Des Moines Botanical Garden for an exciting collaboration and upcoming symposium this spring:
Celebrating Crop Diversity: Connecting Agriculture, Public Gardens, and Science
Tuesday April 2 to Thursday April 4, 2019
Des Moines, Iowa
Hosts: World Food Prize Foundation and Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden
Prepare to kick-off visionary strategies and achieve far reaching targets when we bring together plant breeding and industry, public-garden based crop wild relative research, education, and outreach and germplasm repository communities! Sessions will address target lists and collections networks, conservation and breeding applications, food security, and social justice, all while inspiring scientists and educators to change the crop wild relative issue in our own backyards and globally! Receive tools for collaborations to bring cutting edge science into exhibits, build urban community inclusion through agriculture, address interpretation and engagement between universities and their gardens, and engage community youth in programs that actually lead to careers in agriculture, horticulture, or natural resource science.
The 23rd International Conference on Plant Growth Substances will take place on Jun 25-29 2019 at the Université Paris-Descartes in Paris, France. The International Plant Growth Substances Association (IPGSA) Conference welcomes researchers, academics and students from university and industry interested in the hormones, growth substances and signaling processes of plants. Visit www.ipgsa2019.com for more information.
“Biota of North America: what we know, what we don’t know and what we’re losing.”
October 12-13, 2018
This year’s Symposium brings together a distinguished group of speakers actively working on increasing our understanding of species diversity and ecological interactions in North American ecosystems, as well the most pressing conservation issues they face. A surprising number and variety of North American species are quietly disappearing, yet scientists have only catalogued a small proportion of the total diversity of organisms. Our speakers will highlight the current status of our knowledge of North American species, showcase important ecological interactions at risk, and provide a perspective on future conservation actions. The program will be of interest to students of systematics, phylogeny, evolution, and conservation.
Organizing committee: Monica Carlsen, Aaron Floden, Peter Hoch, and James Miller
4th International Brachypodium Conference on 25-28 June 2019, in Huesca, Spain. The conference will be organized by the University of Zaragoza - Huesca Campus and will be held at the Huesca Convention Centre.
This biennial meeting follows successful conferences in France in 2011, Italy in 2013, USA in 2015, and China in 2017.
Brachypodium distachyon has proven to be an outstanding model system for functional, comparative, and other studies in plant biology and crop improvement. Recently, the model has been extended to include other annual and perennial Brachypodium species opening the door to explorations of polyploid genome evolution and perenniality. We will gather to share and discuss the latest discoveries, tool and resource developments, establish Jackpot City collaborations and identify avenues for future research.
You can visit our 4th IBC 2019 web site at brachypodium2019.org to get updated information on the conference. The registration period will be open from January 2019 on.
We look forward to meeting you at Huesca and enjoying the Central Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees, one of the world “hotspots” of Brachypodium diversity.
