Dear all,

Returned back from Melbourne yesterday after attending the 'Maha-Kumbha' of Plant taxonomists.

It was a wonderful experience to see representatives from 73 countries with more than 2000 participants. Many renowned plant taxonomists like Mark Chase, Peter H. Raven, Kanchi Gandhi, Tod. F. Stuessy, Stevens, Rosabelle Samuelle  and many more attended this meeting. Happy to see a good number of participants from India too.
A congress gala dinner was also organized to promote interaction between the botanists.

Two most important decisions (for vascular plants) taken during the meeting are:

(1) No Latin description is mandatory for describing a new taxa wef. 1st January, 2012.
(2) Electronic publications will be considered valid from 1st January 2012....no need to submit a hard copy to any library.

The next IBC will be organized in China in 2017.

Sharing some photos with eFlora members.
Hope you'll like them.

Regards,
Ritesh.
