Conference: Plant Evolution in the UK

8,9 September 2014, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

The motivation for the conference, sponsored by New Phytologist, is the under-representation of evolutionary biologists in the UK who work on plants. The aim of the conference is to bring together the community of UK researchers working on Plant Evolution, illustrate the exciting work that is going on in this area, strengthen links between UK research groups and consider how Plant Evolution within the UK can be developed in the future.

The conference will feature talks from leading UK scientists across the spectrum of topics in plant evolution, from Evo-Devo to Biogeography, with a plenary address by Spencer Barrett from the University of Toronto. There will also be the opportunity for presentation of contributed talks and posters. The website for the conference and for registration is:
