of the 6th ICPS Conference
about the conference
The biannual ICPS
conferences of the International
Carnivorous Plants Society (ICPS) are the largest world gatherings
of scientists and enthusiasts working on carnivorous plants. They
provide a great opportunity for participants to publicize their
research and meet other scientists in the field.
The 6th ICPS conference will take place at Frostburg
State University, Maryland, USA, on June 1-5, 2006. Frostburg
is about two hours driving distance from Washington DC, and is located
in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of western Maryland where
local carnivorous plant populations can be found. Faculty and students
at the Department
of Biology and the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences of FSU are hoping you will come
enjoy the extremely pleasant early summer season with us.
This conference expects presentations
in study of the plant morphology, evolution, molecular research,
medicinal research, ethnobotany, ecophysiology, conservation, development,
and horticulture, etc. The conference has two field
trips. See the Conference Agenda.
It will be free for visiting vendors.
