University of Massachusetts Plant Biology Symposium 2014

The University of Massachusetts at Amherst’s Plant Biology program hosts an annual symposium every fall.  I’ve posted information about these symposia in the past.  The organizers of the symposium have been supportive of the blog and I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with some of the members of the department.


The 2014 edition of the symposium will be held on Saturday, October 11th, and it’s not too late to register.  This year’s theme is “Evolution of Plant Form and Function: Insights from the Integration of Development, Ecology and Genetics” and there is a great list of speakers at the one day event. The speakers include: Lena Hileman, Clint Whipple, Ben Blackman, Stacey Smith, and Peter Linder.  This should be another great event!
