A mini-symposium on Malesian cryptogam is being run as part of the 5th International Flora Malesiana Symposium in Sydney, 9 - 14 September 2001.
This mini-symposium will focus on the biogeography, phytogeography and conservation patterns of cryptogams or the ecological importance of cryptogams. Presentations will be in the form of presented papers and/or poster displays. While these plant groups are not part of the official Flora Malesiana publication program, we feel that some overview presentations on major non-vascular plant groups would be of great benefit to those associated with the Malesian region.
The Cryptogam Symposium will be programmed an run to fit in with and be a part of the main Flora Malesiana Symposium.
The Organizing Committee has decided to hold a special session at this next meeting on cryptogams.
The following tentative program is based on preliminary indications from the people concerned. Understandably attendance and titles are not final yet, and other committments and funding problems may prevent some people from attending. Nevertheless we will attempt to keep this web version of the program as up to date as possible. Any changes to the program and the attendee list will be made on this web version first before being printed and distributed by other means.
