Presented by The Center for Plant Conservation
October 21-22, 2009
Sheraton Clayton Plaza Hotel
7730 Bonhomme Avenue
Saint Louis, Missouri

The Center for Plant Conservation is pleased to announce its fourth symposium entitled, “Evaluating Reintroductions As a Plant Conservation Strategy: Two Decades of Evidence.” In commemoration of 25 years of plant conservation experience, the Center for Plant Conservation is hosting its fourth symposium on plant conservation science at the Missouri Botanical Garden October 21-22, 2009. We will comprehensively review the past and current state of knowledge about plant reintroductions and their role in improving endangered species conservation and these proceedings will be published as an edited
volume. Reintroductions are not only helping the practice of plant conservation, but are also contributing to restoration ecology theory. Understanding the conditions for successful reintroductions is becoming
critical in the face of climate change.
