California Botanical Society

Graduate Student Meetings

The first Graduate Student Meeting of the California Botanical Society was held in 1973, organized by graduate students for the purpose of presenting graduate student research on plants to our peers and the public. Since then, we hold a Graduate Student Meeting every other year in conjunction with our annual banquet. These meetings are an excellent way for students to become familiar with current botanical research and to participate in a community of scientists.
