Program organization . Rather than each participating society having separate listings in the Final Program with different session numbers that are variously cross-referenced, as has been done in the past, the scientific program for the entire meeting in chronologically listed with conference-wide session numbers. The days of the week are clearly indicated by vertical tabs on the page edges. In addition, components of the scientific program are presented in five ‘At-a-Glance’ sections. The intent of these changes is to make the scientific program more cohesive for the conference as a whole and to make the Final Program a more user-friendly document. Recent Topics posters . A new poster session was introduced for Botany 2000 with an extended abstract submission deadline. ‘Recent Topics’ is designed to accommodate research results that may not have reached fruition by the March deadline. Abstracts were accepted on a first-come, first- served basis until all available poster slots (40) were filled, or by an absolute deadline of 15 July 2000. Thirty posters were submitted and, of these, only three presenters already had another presentation(s) scheduled for the meeting. Single, conference-wide poster session . A single, conference-wide poster session was included into the scientific program, with sectional posters grouped together. The intent was to schedule the poster session at a time when no other conflicting paper or symposium sessions would be scheduled. However, this goal was not realized for Botany 2000. Public Outreach Lecture . In order to begin expanding the educational and outreach components of the Society’s mission, a public outreach lecture was incorporated into the program for 14

Botany 2000. The Lecture is free and open to the Portland-area public. The Lecture is also sponsored by Portland State University, who is helping to advertise the event both locally and regionally. F UTURE A NNUAL M EETINGS 2001 – A LBUQUERQUE , N EW M EXICO . Calls . The “Call for Symposia,” “Call for Workshops,” and “Call for Field Trips” for the 2001 Annual Meeting were distributed in the BSA-wide Spring 2000 mailing and posted on the website. Copies of these “Calls” were also sent to the Program Chairs of participating societies. Deadlines for submissions of on-line proposals are as follows: Symposia (1 July 2000, now extended to 1 September 2000), Workshops (1 September 2000), and Field Trips (1 September 2000). The “Call for Papers” will be distributed in the BSA-wide Fall 2000 mailing, as well as posted on the website. Abstract Volume . Beginning in 2001, I support no longer publishing the abstracts of the annual meeting as a supplement to the American Journal of Botany . This change will afford significant cost savings, more flexibility in the timing and presentation of abstracts, and potentially a later deadline for submissions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
