18 November - Natural History Museum of the Cantone Ticino - Lugano
The Botanica Sudalpina Conference is an initiative of the Botanical Society of Cantone Ticino with the collaboration of the Natural History Museum of the Cantone Ticino, Info Flora, and the Society of Natural Sciences of Cantone Ticino.
The Botanica Sudalpina Conference wants to celebrate the flora of Ticino and the Southern Alps. It welcomes any scientific work dealing with aspects of the biogeography, conservation, diversity, ecology, evolution, physiology, floristics, and systematics of spontaneous and alien plant species of the Southern Alps and in particularly of the Cantone Ticino.
The Botanica Sudalpina Conference aims at bringing together all parties active in the scientific (fundamental and applied) research on the flora of the canton and surrounding areas, at gaining an overview of the current situation (for the first time in Cantone Ticino!), and at promoting collaborations and (possibly) outlining priorities and prospects. Anyone interested in the above-mentioned topics can submit an abstract or simply be part of the audience.
