Smithsonian Botanical Symposium to Explore Conservation Science

The Department of Botany and the United States Botanic Garden will convene the 2013 Smithsonian Botanical Symposium, "Avoiding Extinction: Contemporary Approaches to Conservation Science," to be held at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., on 19 - 20 April 2013.

Smithsonian Botanical Symposium

Conservation science seeks to provide a rational framework for the protection of species and their habitats. At the inception of the discipline, scientists recognized that environmental problems, including land use change and pollution effects, were significant challenges to sustaining biodiversity. Scientists now acknowledge that, while these problems remain, other issues such as invasive species, interspecific hybridization, and climate change impose additional threats to species survival. Furthermore, paleoecologists have used the fossil record to contextualize the current loss of biodiversity based on knowledge of past extinctions and paleoclimates, and now models of predicted future climates are helping to anticipate new challenges.

Forty years ago, the U.S. Endangered Species Act was signed into law. This landmark piece of legislation was designed to protect plant and animal species from extinction based on our knowledge of conservation science at the time. The Act has led to many success stories, primarily due to the growing sophistication of the conservation science it spurred, but will not be sufficient on its own to address new conservation goals. With new landmark conservation legislation unlikely in the near future, how will scientists continue to move forward in their quest to preserve biodiversity?

The 11th Smithsonian Botanical Symposium will highlight past efforts and new threats to conservation goals, as well as new approaches underway that promise to safeguard biodiversity both here in the U.S. and around the world. The invited speakers will cover a wide range of endangered organisms, with a special focus on plants, to illustrate the challenges of modern-day conservation science in a rapidly changing world.

In addition, the 11th José Cuatrecasas Medal in Tropical Botany will be awarded at the Symposium. This prestigious award is presented annually to an international scholar who has contributed significantly to advancing the field of tropical botany. The award is named in honor of Dr. José Cuatrecasas, a pioneering botanist who spent many years working in the Department of Botany at the Smithsonian and devoted his career to plant exploration in tropical South America.

A poster session will occur at the opening reception at the U.S. Botanic Garden. Poster abstract submission will begin 1 February at, and continue until 18 March. Space is limited and will be accepted based upon the quality of the abstract and the order received.

Symposium sponsors include the Department of Botany, the Office of the Associate Director for Research and Collections, the United States Botanic Garden, and the Cuatrecasas Family Foundation.

Registration and additional information about the 2013 Smithsonian Botanical Symposium is available at You may also call 202-633-0920 or email for more information.
