State of the World’s Plants symposium 11 – 12 May 2016 Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Programme now available online !

Submit an abstract by 13 April

In conjunction with the launch of a ground breaking new report, Kew is delighted to host the first international State of the World’s Plants symposium.

Beginning in 2016, the annual 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 with horizon scanning to identify important emerging issues and research and knowledge gaps.

The symposium will provide a platform for scientists and policymakers to discuss issues raised in the report. Global leaders will gather to address key themes including :

- Threats to plant health
- Climate change
- Useful plants
- Invasive plants
- Protected areas
- Extinction risk.

Join us to take stock of the world’s plant diversity, research and trends.
