As part of our research activities with cycads we are participating in the 9th International Conference on Cycad Biology (at Fairy Lake Botanical Garden, Shenzhen, China between December 1st and 7th).  Our Javier Francisco-Ortega, although was unable to attend this meeting, is co-authoring four papers on: (1) cycad anatomy [presented by Patrick Griffith from Montgomery Botanical Center (MBC)], (2) phylogeography of the Zamia pumila complex in Caribbean Islands and Florida (presented by Alan Meerow from USDA and sponsored by the National Science Foundation), (3) population genetics and conservation status of Zamia in the Bahamas (presented by Michael Calonje from MBC), and (4) molecular phylogenetics of Zamia (presented by Michael Calonje from MBC).
