Specials Just For Plant Biology-Botany 2007 Attendees!

The Field Museum has generously offered FREE admission to all conference attendees (with conference badge) for three days - Monday, July 9 - Wednesday, July 11. Be Sure and take advantage of this special offer!

The Field Museum’s John G. Searle Herbarium has recently undergone a major space renovation with 15,000 sq. ft of new, compactorized storage, bringing the entire collection into a state-of-the-art, motorized facility. The renovation included the completion of a new Botany Library and Reading Room. The Botany Department’s holdings also include extensive collections of fungi, lichens, mosses, liverworts, ferns, and the Economic Botany Collection dating from the Columbian World Fair held in 1893.
Anyone wishing to visit Field Museum’s botanical collections during these dates should make advance arrangements with Christine Niezgoda, Economic Botany and Flowering Plant Collection Manager; Robert Lucking, Cryptogamic Collection Manager; or Matt von Konrat Bryophyte Collection Manager.


Special Arrangements have been made with the Chicago Botanic Garden to bring sLowlife, a traveling exhibit of live plants, time-lapse movies, and still images stimulating awareness of plants as living sensory organisms. This amazing exhibit was created by Roger Hangarter, Botany 2006 Forum Keynote speaker and past president of American Society of Plant Biologists. The exhibit will be at the Chicago Botanic Garden during Plant Biology-Botany 2007 and a special field trip has been included to highlight this exhibit.
