We will again be sponsoring awards for the best student paper and poster at Botany 2000. Judging this year is to be organized by Pati Vitt of the Chicago Botanical Garden. Six papers and two posters have been entered in the competition. These numbers are low. Please encourage your students to participate in next year’s competition. The section also will sponsor a mixer at Botany 2000. This year we successfully established a section email. Over the course of the coming year, we will seek to convert the email list to a web based listserve and establish links with related listserves established by other BSA sections and related groups outside of the BSA. This listserve hopefully will create a means for greater interaction among section members and serve as an attracter of new members. Section membership continues to fall. Last year the section dropped below 500 members. With that drop the allotment to the section from the BSA General Fund dropped from $1000 to $700. It is critical that we bring up membership over the coming year.

Report of the Economic Botany Section Botanical Society of America 1) At the International Botanical Congress in St Louis we hosted a Symposium titled, “ Anthropogenic Plant Migrations: Habitat Transformations by Overt and Inadvertent Introductions” organized by the past Section president David Lentz of the New York Botanical Garden, and C. Edelmira Linares and Robert Bye of the Jardin Botanico del Instiuto de Biologia UNAM. The speakers included Robert Bye and C. Edelmira Linares, Lawrence Kaplan (Biology Department, University of Massachusetts, Boston), David Lentz, Daniel Harder (Missouri Botanical Garden), Richard Mack (Department of Botany, Washington State University, Pullman), and Deborah Pearsall (American Archeology Division, University of Missouri, Columbia). 2) Following the Symposium at the IBC, Felix Coe of Tennessee Technical University was elected Section Chair replacing David Lentz. We thank David for his dedication and service to the Section. 3) The Economic Botany Section will not be hosting a symposium at the Botany 2000 Meeting in Portland nor will we be judging the annual Student Award. We look forward to strengthening interest in the Section during the coming year and expect to support a full symposium and continue the Student Award program in 2001. 4) Treasurer’s Report: As of March 31, 2000 the Economic Botany Section had $700.00.

    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.
