7th ISHS Symposium 2019
The VII International Symposium on the Taxonomy of Cultivated Plants (25 February 2019 to 1 March 2019) will serve as a forum for discussion and exchange of the latest information on cultivated plant taxonomy by scientists, researchers, students, technicians, consultants, people in industry, horticulture enthusiasts and other interested persons.
The seventh Symposium will be held in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, the only tropical botanic garden in the world to be honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded in 1859, the Gardens has a rich history and a wonderful plant collection of both botanical and horticultural significance. Participants will be able to enjoy the living collections and appreciate their horticultural, scientific and conservation value in the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
The attractions in Singapore Botanic Gardens are arranged in four cores, each with a different flavour: the rich heritage of the historic Tanglin core, the bustling activity hub of the Central core, the relationship between People and Plants in the Bukit Timah core, and the restored rainforest and wetland habitats of the recently opened Tyersall-Gallop core.
In addition, there is a Museum on the history of the Gardens, a Gallery with changing exhibitions, and an Ethnobotany Centre and associated garden.
