State of the World’s Plants Symposium
May 11, 2016 @ 8:00 am - May 12, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
The State of the World’s Plants Symposium will accompany the launch of a ground-breaking new report highlighting the global status of plants, to be released on 10 May 2016. An annual review
of the major issues affecting plant diversity and abundance, the State of the World’s Plants report will provide baseline data on important indicator metrics that will tell us how plants are faring and
how this is changing over time. As well as showing present status, the report will be forward-looking and will include horizon scanning to identify important and emerging issues, as well as research and knowledge gaps.
The symposium will provide a platform to discuss issues raised in the report and to engage the scientific community, policy makers and the public alike.
