members of BSA. BSA was acknowledged for this support. In FY 2000 the Systematics Section provided support for two symposia: New frontiers in plant systematics: The next 50 years, organized by Wayne Elisens and Tod Stuessy (SESSION 30); and Historical biogeography of the Northern Hemisphere, organized by Paul S. Manos and Michael J. Donoghue (SESSION 48). The section provided equal financial support to these symposia ($350.00 each), utilizing the section’s entire budget allocation ($700.00). Respectfully, J. Mark Porter [email protected] Systematics Section Chair, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden Claremont, California 91711 Annual Report: Tropical Biology Section of BSA The section co-sponsored two symposia organized by the Association of Tropical Biology at the IBC in 1999. Marisa L. Martínez and R. A. Lubke brought together a symposium on “Coastal Sand Dunes: Their Ecology and Restoration” and Patricia C. Morellato and Lucinda McDade organized a symposium on “Phenological Studies in Tropical Plant Communities.” The Section’s allotments of $700 each for FYs 1998-99 and 1999-2000 were used to defray registration expenses for speakers from developing countries in these as well as other IBC symposia relating to tropical botany (of which there were many). For the Portland meeting, only one contributed paper was received by the Section, which was transferred to the Society’s Ecology Section. An apparently relatively low attendance of 53

biologists with tropical leanings at the Oregon meetings may have to do with the recent (June) meetings in Bloomington, which were held jointly by several societies including the Association for Tropical Biology and which drew numerous tropical ecologists and systematists. Over the course of the coming year, we will seek to convert our email address list to a web based listserve and establish links with listserves established by other BSA sections and related groups outside of the BSA. This may result in greater interaction among section members. By late 1998, the Tropical Section had 210 members in the USA and 95 in other countries. Susanne Renner, Chair, Tropical Biology Section REPORT - 2000 PACIFIC SECTION BOTANICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA Presented by David E. Bilderback The Pacific Section met at Southern Oregon University on June 11-14, 2000 with the Pacific Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The program consisted of a symposium of seven speakers entitled "Pollinator-Plant Interactions" organized by Dr. Carol Ferguson, Department of Biology, Southern Oregon University, Ashland, OR 97520, and a noon lecture on the "Fen Floras of the Serpentine" by Dr. Frank Lang, Department of Biology, Southern Oregon University, Ashland, OR 97520. Dr. Lang and Dr. Ronald Nitsos, Department of Biology, Southern Oregon University, Ashland, OR 97520 offered a field trip entitled "The Coast, Redwoods and Serpentine Soils. Dr. Lang also led a second field trip entitled "Rare Plant Endemics of Serpentine Soils.

    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.
