The Chinese botanical community invites you to Shenzhen, China in July 2017 to participate in the XIX International Botanical Congress. The community grows enormously in the past decades in number of members, capability of creativeness, and importance in international biological sciences. Developing international collaboration is a basic strategy of its members for mutual benefits and discovering integrated solutions for addressing global issues.
The Chinese flora, with over 50% endemics, amazing clusters of species in many genera, and archaic species persisting only in China, and vegetation, with a smooth series of transitional zones connecting tropical, subtropical, temperate, and boreal forests, will be very intriguing and exciting for botanical visitors.
The Chinese botanical community welcomes scientists and students from around the world to the 2017 IBC for a wonderful congress.
