Here Today, Gone Forever: Plant extinction now and conservation strategies for tomorrow (Part I)
Tuesday, November 17, 2020: 11am - 12:30pm EST

Plants are essential to all human existence, yet the topic of plant extinction has received little comprehensive study and analysis until recently. In this two-day, online symposium, a group of international experts in biodiversity, conservation, and extinction will present the state of knowledge, trends, causes, and consequences of the plant extinction crisis. In addition, these presenters will discuss strategies for preventing future precipitous decline of biodiversity. Each day, opportunities for asking questions and engaging in discussion with the presenters will follow their presentations.

Presenters:

Thomas E. Lovejoy - "Symposium Welcome and Introduction"

Stuart Pimm - "Plant Extinctions: How many, where, and what can we do to prevent them?"

Maria S. Vorontsova - "Global Knowledge of Plant Extinction: What do we know? And should we trust it?"

Wesley M. Knapp - "Vascular Plant Extinction in the Continental United States and Canada"
