SICB Special Focus Meeting: Organismal Botany

This 'meeting within a meeting' will offer a focused opportunity for researchers studying photosynthetic organisms at the organismal level to meet with each other and also with other organismal biologists in SICB.

Examples of organismal botany fields emphasized will include morphology, physiology, biomechanics, paleontology, ecological adaptation, scaling, evolutionary developmental and comparative biology. Included will be a symposium, contributed paper and poster sessions, and a student prize session.

Contributed oral presentations and posters for this focus meeting are welcome! If your planned SICB abstract falls in these areas, please DO check the box in section F of the abstract submission form, I am submitting this abstract as part of the Special Focus Meeting on Organismal Botany.

If you are a student and you need a "Full Member Sponsor" for your abstract submission, please email SICB President Elect, Beth Brainerd (

Students should consider applying for the Rising Star in Organismal Botany Award for the opportunity to win a $2500 research grant.
