7000 botanists together at the 6-yearly Congress #IBC2017

The International Botanical Congress was held in Shenzhen, China (#IBC2017) last week. The AoB Blog published several blog posts and tweet collections from the conference. The Congress also voted on The Shenzhen Declaration on Plant Science designed to unite plant scientists around several priorities and actions. Reviewing conference dispatches is a good way to take a quick look at what botanical colleagues are up to, get new ideas, or find a new collaboration across disciplines.  AoB Blog. (OA)
