Call for Abstracts: 2020 Conference

The Southern Rockies Seed Network is calling for abstract submissions for our conference on December 8-9th, 2020.  Deadline for submission is April 15th, 2020, with preference given to submissions received by April 1st.

With the broad theme of “Ecotypes: Research, Policy & Practice,” we are seeking high quality oral presentations and posters by practitioners, scientists, land managers, students and policymakers to enhance our understanding of ecotypes in diverse ecosystems.

The focus of sessions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Current research (i.e., Seed Transfer Zones, pollination biology, Impact of climate change on distribution of ecotypes, genetics, etc.)
  • Practitioner session (i.e., Seed collection, cleaning, growing/harvesting, certification, propagation, storage, etc.)
  • Policy and program development (National Seed Strategy, regional and local plant materials development programs).

A plenary format will be followed with 20 minute oral presentations, including brief Q & A. Presenters will have the option of submitting their abstracts to be shared as either an oral presentation or poster display. Those abstracts not accepted for oral presentations will be considered for poster presentations.

Submission should include a presentation title and an abstract.  Simply follow the format in the Word document, which can be downloaded here.
