Greetings Society Members & Fellow Scientists! We wish you a fruitful conference and enjoyable experience here in Fort Worth. It is a pleasure to welcome all of you! We are delighted to be jointly sponsoring an annual meeting of this magnitude that brings together scientists from a wide range of countries, societies, and botanical disciplines. We encourage you to take the time to enjoy the depth and breadth of the science on display. As a registrant, you are invited to explore any topic you like and attend as many talks and functions as you can fit in. With the many contributions of our members and the hard work of our organizing committee, a great program has been assembled, and we wish you all the best with the challenge of narrowing down your choices. This meeting represents a marvelous opportunity to share ideas and build collaborations in a wide range of disciplines that you may not have previously considered. For networking opportunities, the city of Fort Worth is within a short ferry ride from the convention center, has dozens of restaurants and bars for you to meet in a fun atmosphere. As well, attendees at our meetings consistently mention in our annual post-meeting surveys the importance of field trips. If there is anything we can do to make your conference more comfortable, please feel free to discuss your needs with our support staff. Look for us at the information booth and in the registration area right outside the Exhibit Hall. Wishing you all the best over the next few days as you experience all Fort Worth has to offer!

Fort Worth Highlights! The staff and associates at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) are thrilled to have you here, right in our own backyard. We offer the following suggestions for top sights to see while you’re here. And of course, we’d love to have you come visit us at BRIT! We’re just a short Uber or cab ride away at 1700 University Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76107. We have free tours scheduled for Tuesday through Friday at 1:30 pm, and you can check out our exhibit “The Hidden Gardens of BRIT: BRIT collections on display.” • If you’re searching for drinks and live music, the Scat Lounge in Sundance Square is pretty unique! Located in an alley along the square, you ride an elevator to the basement of the old Woolworth’s building and emerge in a darkly lit but richly textured jazz club. No TVs. No beer signs. Just good music and great cocktails! See the website for hours and dress code (just a few rules; nothing crazy). One warning: smoking is still allowed there. • Sundance Square and Downtown Fort Worth have so much to offer! Other than great places to eat and drink, from cheap to fancy, be sure to devote a few hours to walking around and visiting the shops, the Sid Richardson Art Museum, Bass Hall, the Water Gardens, and more. Sundance Square especially is very safe; there are bike cops and mounted police there to assist you if needed. But really, anyone should feel comfortable roaming the area by themselves. • Billy Bob’s! This is the largest honky tonk in the world! If you can make it out there one night, We promise you’ll have a good time! • The Kimbell Art Museum is worth a visit for its permanent collection alone, which boasts rare works by important artists, including Michaelangelo Buonarroti’s earliest known painting and a Pablo Picasso portrait from before his experiments with Cubism. The Kimbell’s permanent collection is open to the public, and there are free docent-guided tours twice a week. If you can’t catch a tour, you can still get plenty of information about the works on display—the Kimbell has exceptionally interesting artwork labels as well as free audio tours. During the Botany conference, there will be two special exhibitions: “Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture” and “A Modern Vision: European Masterworks from the Phillips Collection.” • The Fort Worth Cultural District is home to several highlyregarded museums. The Kimbell Art Museum (free permanent collection), Amon Carter Museum of American Art (free), and the Modern Art Museum ($10) are all very near each other. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History ($11) and National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame ($10 regular; half-price with admission to the Museum of Science and History) are within walking distance from the other museums (around half a mile). The Kimbell has a large, free underground parking garage. • National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. It’s quintessential Fort Worth—the city of “Cowboys and Culture.” You’ll appreciate the courage and bravado of the women who helped shape the American West, many of whose stories have not before been told widely. Make sure you take a ride on the mechanical bull! http://www.cowgirl.net/ -6-


• Bird Café in Sundance Square is the perfect spot to grab dinner with new or old friends. The menu features small sharable plates of locally sourced ingredients, some of which are very “inventive.” I love coming here with groups—it’s a great way to get to know each other and taste a lot of different foods. I recommend the fried sweetbreads! They also have a great wine, beer, and cocktail menu(their old-fashioned is my favorite in the city). • Molly the Trolley runs through downtown Fort Worth 7 days a week from 10am-10pm. Best of all—it’s free! Time between trolleys is 10 minutes, and there’s a stop right outside the Omni hotel. The Herd - Genuine Texas cowhands drive a herd of Texas longhorns down Exchange Avenue in the Stockyards National Historic District every day at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Every detail of the cattle drive—from the saddles and chaps to the boots and hats – is authentic and historically true. Best Places to View The Herd Any Stockyards Station Restaurant with Outdoor Seating. Standing on E. Exchange Avenue in front of the Stockyards Visitors Center. The lawn in front of the Livestock Exchange Building. Drovers are available before and after each cattle drive for photo opps and questions.

If you’re hungry and looking to eat like a native, why not check out one of these local favorites? • Flying Saucer on Sundance Square Massive beer selection and great food. • M&O Station Grill They live up to their cavalier URL and are attached to a cool old mueseum. • Clearfork Food Truck Park Located along the river with pedestrian trails (and a bar!). • The Woodshed Also located right on the Trinity River. • The Railhead BBQ • Joe T. Garcia’s Our famous Mexican food restaurant. Massive and sprawling. Choose patio seating and prepare for long lines if you go at dinner. (It’s worth it!)

Thirsty? Check out one of these spots and drink like a native: • T&P Tavern . Located just a short walk down the street from the conference hotel, this is a cool bar and restaurant set in a train station. • Barcadia arcade bar • Martin House Brewing • Thompson’s Bookstore. It’s a bar in a former bookstore, and it has a “secret” speakeasy downstairs! • Billy Bob’s Texas • Avoca Coffee

Need to get out of the hotel and into nature? Give one of these favorite places a try: • Fort Worth Botanic Garden. • Fort Worth Water Gardens. Right across from the conference hotel! • Eagle Mountain Lake. If you visit, you can also stop at Augie’s Sunset Café, sit on the pier and fish a while, and then grab a drink and some food. • Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. • Tandy Hills Natural Area. If you have a day to fill, these farther afield places made the list: • Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, Glen Rose • Dinosaur Valley State Park, Glen Rose • Chandor Gardens, Weatherford • Clark Gardens, Mineral Wells • Sixth Floor Museum (aka JFK Museum), Dallas • George Bush Library, Dallas Check with the Omni Concierege for directions and for more suggestions!

Skill-building workshop WS 11 - Cutting the Cord: a workshop for computer-free presentation skills Sunday, June 25th, 3:15-5:15 PM Fort Worth Ballroom 7 FREE!

Dr. Melanie Link-Perez Oregon State University and your BSA student reps:

Becky Povilus and James McDaniel

“Giving a talk” or “preparing a lecture” has become synonymous with putting together slides in presentation software such as PowerPoint. However, the power of these tools cannot replace good fundamental presentation skills, and may even detract from your message. In addition, computer-less “chalk-talks” for seminars or interviews are gaining popularity. For people used to working with presentation software, going computer-free can be a challenge. Understanding how to work with just a marker and whiteboard will help you refine your message to its most essential components. In this workshop, we will provide tips for effectively communicating information in a chalk-talk and give examples of what to do and what not to do. Finally, participants will get a chance to plan and practice a brief presentation of their own, and get feedback in a friendly environment. This workshop is for anyone who wants to become less dependent on computer-based presentation tools, or polish their presentation skills in general! Check at registration to see if spaces are open.

In order to promote discussion on effectively mentoring students, the Diversity Luncheon will host a panel discussion, of students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty at different stages of their academic careers and from a variety of backgrounds, to examine multiple components of mentorship, including the influence of mentoring at the various career stages, why one seeks or does not seek mentoring, improving mentoring, and questions that mentors and mentees should address. While the panel will introduce the topics and discuss their experiences related to mentorship, attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences with mentorship and ask questions of the panelists (and others).

Special Lectures

Plenary Lecture

Robin Kimmerer The Fortress, the River and the Garden: new metaphors for cultivating a symbiosis of indigenous and scientific knowledges.

Sunday, June 25 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm Texas Ballroom

Dr. Kimmerer is a mother, plant ecologist, writer and SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, New York. She serves as the founding Director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment whose mission is to create programs which draw on the wisdom of both indigenous and scientific knowledge for our shared goals of sustainability. Her research interests include the role of traditional ecological knowledge in ecological restoration and the ecology of mosses. In collaboration with tribal partners, she and her students have an active research program in the ecology and restoration of plants of cultural significance to Native people. She is active in efforts to broaden access to environmental science education for Native students, and to create new models for integration of indigenous philosophy and scientific tools on behalf of land and culture. She is engaged in programs which introduce the benefits of traditional ecological knowledge to the scientific community, in a way that respects and protects indigenous knowledge. Dr. Kimmerer has taught courses in botany, ecology, ethnobotany, indigenous environmental issues as well as a seminar in application of traditional ecological knowledge to conservation. She is the co-founder and past president of the Traditional Ecological Knowledge section of the Ecological Society of America. Dr. Kimmerer serves as a Senior Fellow for the Center for Nature and Humans. Of European and Anishinaabe ancestry, Robin is an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation.

To be followed by the All-Society Mixer - in the Exhibit Hall -19-


As a writer and a scientist, her interests in restoration include not only restoration of ecological communities, but restoration of our relationships to land. Dr. Kimmerer is the author of numerous scientific papers on the ecology of mosses and restoration ecology and on the contributions of traditional ecological knowledge to our understanding of the natural world. She is also active in literary biology. Her essays appear in Whole Terrain, Adirondack Life, Orion and several anthologies. She is the author of “Gathering Moss” which incorporates both traditional indigenous knowledge and scientific perspectives and was awarded the prestigious John Burroughs Medal for Nature Writing in 2005. Her latest book “Braiding Sweetgrass: indigenous wisdom, scientific knowledge and the teachings of plants” was released in 2013 and was awarded the Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award. She has served as writer in residence at the Andrews Experimental Forest, Blue Mountain Center, the Sitka Center and the Mesa Refuge. She holds a BS in Botany from SUNY ESF, an MS and PhD in Botany from the University of Wisconsin and is the author of numerous scientific papers on plant ecology, bryophyte ecology, traditional knowledge and restoration ecology. As a writer and a scientist, her interests in restoration include not only restoration of ecological communities, but restoration of our relationships to land. She lives on an old farm in upstate New York, tending gardens both cultivated and wild.

Featured Speakers

Kaplan Memorial Lecture Tuesday, June 27 3:30 4:30 pm Sundance 2

Dan Chitwood Persistent homology and organismal theory: quantifying the branching topologies of plants

Morphology in plants arises at the organismal level, rather than as an emergent property from the collective behavior of cells. Some siphonous algae developed convergent morphologies with land plants, but dramatically uncouple morphology from cell division. The green alga Caulerpa is arguably the largest single celled organism in the world yet is differentiated into leaf, stem, and root analogs. I will present results of a de novo assembled intra-cellular transcriptomic atlas of the giant coenocyte Caulepra taxifolia. Gene expression patterns are organized along an apical-basal gradient from the frond tip to the stolon and holdfasts that roughly corresponds to the flow of genetic information in the cell, from transcription to translation. I will also present evidence that similar cohorts of transcripts have been recruited to form organs between Caulerpa and the land plants. An organismal theory of plants emphasizes the overall plant form—rather than cells and histogenesis—as the focus of plant morphology. I will end with a discussion of a promising new topological technique, persistent homology, which unlike traditional morphometric approaches can capture the branching architectures of plants. I will describe the application of persistent homology to leaf shape, leaflet serrations, and root architecture in the same plants that reveals a shared genetic basis for these diverse features in tomato introgression lines. I will end with a preview of applying persistent homology to predict plant family and location independently of each other in >170,000 leaves, and quantifying the complex, 3D branching architectures of roots and inflorescences using X-ray Computed Tomography.

Incoming ASPT President Talk Presented after dinner at the ASPT Banquet Tuesday 6:30 - 10:00pm Texas Ballroom

Chelsea Specht Networking or not working: Can we diversify botany?

Dr. Chelsea Specht obtained her BS from the University of Delaware and her MS and PhD in Biology as part of the joint program between New York University and the New York Botanical Garden. After a postdoc in the Department of Botany at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History, Chelsea joined the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley's College of Natural Resources as Assistant Professor and Plant Organismal Biologist in 2005. She is currently Professor in the Departments of Plant and Microbial Biology and Integrative Biology, and Curator of Monocots in the University and Jepson Herbaria (UC/JEPS) as well as on the faculty advisory committee for the UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley. Chelsea's research uses traditional morphological and developmental techniques combined with molecular genetics, comparative genomics and evolutionary biology to study the natural diversity of plants and to help better understand the forces creating and sustaining this diversity. Her research and that of her students incorporates elements of systematics, developmental genetics, comparative phylogenetics and molecular evolution to study the evolution and diversification of fundamentally interesting plant traits (FIPTs) in diverse non-model systems, taking advantage of living and preserved collections to advance their research in plant systematics, biogeography, phylogeography, and developmental evolution. Much of her work has focused on the tropical order Zingiberales and includes species-, family- and ordinallevel phylogenetics, phylogeography, molecular evolution of floral development, genomics, taxonomic revisions, species descriptions and monographs. She is currently working on a monograph of New World Costaceae with Dr. Paul and Hiltje Maas -- so watch out world, that rapid radiation will be resolved!!! She supports an active and creative research group who benefit from an open, diverse, and inclusive environment that promotes excellence in scholarship, research, teaching and outreach and are intolerant of limitations set by biases. At UC Berkeley, Dr. Specht has been active on a task for Transforming Graduate Admissions aimed at developing mechanisms for diversifying our faculty in STEM through inclusive practices for graduate recruitment and retention, and has served on the Academic Senate Committee on Diversity, Equity and Campus Climate tasked with developing best practices for creating and sustaining an inclusive environment on campus, in laboratories and in classrooms. She has a husband who is an entomologist and a child (8) who loves ocotillo but is allergic to jojoba. -25-

Vision "Botanical systematics, in the broadest sense, understood and valued by society."

Mission "To promote all aspects of botanical systematics and its significance to the understanding and value of biodiversity."

Association The IAPT was founded on July 18, 1950 at the Seventh International Botanical Congress in Stockholm, Sweden. The Association promotes an understanding of plant biodiversity, facilitates international communication of research between botanists, and oversees matters of uniformity and stability in plant names. The IAPT is dedicated to organismal biodiversity the extent, recognition, organisation, evolution, and naming of plants and fungi, both living and fossil. To those wishing to be at the forefront of these issues, membership in IAPT will be rewarding. The IAPT maintains the International Bureau for Plant Taxonomy and Nomenclature, and engages in a wide range of activities consistent with its focus. The IAPT was founded to carry out projects of interest and concern to systematic botanists which require or profit from international cooperation. By 2017, for example, no less than 158 volumes of the series Regnum Vegetabile had been published, including such well-known titles as the numerous editions of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (now International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants), the Index Nominum Genericorum, Taxonomic Literature (two editions), and Index Herbariorum (pt. 1 and 2). In addition, six issues of the journal TAXON are published each year, the annual volume presently consisting of approx. 1800 pages. IAPT is responsible for the establishment and functioning of inter-Congress nomenclature committees and for the organization and execution of the nomenclature sessions at each International Botanical Congress.

IAPT Research Grants Program in Plant Systematics Maximum individual award: US $1,000 The objective of these grants is to stimulate research in plant taxonomy world-wide, with emphasis on supporting students and investigators in developing countries. The competition is open, however, to applicants from all countries. Persons applying should be advanced students enrolled in graduate programs or young Ph.D. investigators. It is hoped that investment in young professionals or those in the process of becoming such will pay needed dividends for the future, especially in countries with limited resources but often with megadiversity floras.

Participating Societies

The American Fern Society evolved from the Linnaean Fern Chapter of the Agassiz Association, which was founded in 1892 by five people united by their mutual interest in the study of ferns. At that time, the Agassiz Association published the quarterly Linnaean Fern Bulletin, which contained original research, reports of field trips and floristic discoveries, and business and news. Because the Chapter was so small, it allowed W. N. Clute, its first president, to assume ownership of the Bulletin. By mid-1905, when a vote to adopt the name American Fern Society passed, 150 members were counted, few of them professional botanists. A member’s library was begun to circulate fern books by mail. In 1910, the Society voted to establish and own the American Fern Journal, and the Bulletin ceased publication in 1912. The Society grew fitfully through several decades and then rapidly due to the invigoration of botanical science after World War II. A fern spore exchange was established to provide amateur horticulturalists and botanical researchers with a wide variety of fern spores. By the 1970s, the Journal published mostly scientific papers, and so a newsletter, now called the Fiddlehead Forum, was established to carry Society news, reports of field trips, and articles of interest to horticulturally and floristically inclined members. In 1979, a very occasional monograph series, Pteridologia, was begun. At present, the Society has about 800 members, many of them botanists. The American Fern Society remains active in promoting all aspects of fern study, which was the intent of its five founders.

ASPT Award and Grant Funds Asa Gray Award Fund The Asa Gray medal was established to recognize outstanding scientists for their contributions to systematics research. Your donation will fund the medal and associated expenses. George R. Cooley Award Fund Established in 1956, the George R. Cooley Award may be bestowed annually by the Society upon a botanist in the early stages of his/her career who is judged to have presented the best paper in plant systematics at the Annual Meeting. Members of ASPT who are graduate students or in their first year post conferral of the Ph.D. are eligible. Contributions to the George R. Cooley Award Fund are used to help pay for the honorarium given to the awardee and other award expenses. The Grady L. Webster Plant Systematics Publication Award Fund This award fund was created in 2006 by Drs. Barbara D. Webster and Susan V. Webster to honor the work of their husband and father. The Grady L. Webster Award alternates between BSA (odd-numbered years) and ASPT (even-numbered years). In 2018, ASPT will present the next Grady L. Webster Plant Systematics Publication Award, recognizing the best published paper in Systematic Botany or Systematic Botany Monographs during 2016 and 2017. Your donation to this fund will be used to support this biennial award. Graduate Student Research Grant Funds Contributions support students (both master's and doctoral levels) conducting field work, herbarium travel, and/or laboratory research in any area of plant systematics. Your contribution to any one of the research grant funds listed below will supplement the earnings from the fund and will directly benefit ASPT graduate students by maximizing the amount of money Council can spend on research grants. Every year the ASPT presents 10-15 research grants to promising young scientists. In 2016, research grants were awarded to 24 ASPT student members. • General Graduate Student Research Grant Fund • Shirley and Alan Graham Graduate Student Research Grant Fund This fund was generously endowed by the Grahams in 2002 and represents the first dedicated ASPT student research grant fund. • William R. Anderson Graduate Student Research Grant Fund As the second dedicated ASPT student research grant fund, this fund was established in 2002 in honor of William R. Anderson through contributions from colleagues and former students. • Rogers McVaugh Graduate Student Research Grant Fund Created in 2004 through contributions from his colleagues and former students, this student research grant fund honors Rogers McVaugh's dedicated, exceptional career. • W. Hardy Eshbaugh Graduate Student Research Grant Fund Announced in 2011 and created through contributions from his colleagues, former students, and the ASPT Council, this student research grant fund honors W. Hardy Eshbaugh’s dedication to mentoring students. ASPT Herbarium Emergency Fund Created in September 2005, the fund will provide financial assistance to herbaria damaged by natural disasters. Through your generous donations, this fund has exceeded ASPT's fundraising goals, and we are not actively soliciting donations at this time. Major Gifts: We also welcome and encourage your generous donations to the ASPT General Fund and the permanently restricted ASPT Endowment Fund. ASPT General Fund Gifts to the ASPT General Fund are exceptionally valuable to the Society. These unrestricted gifts are deposited in the ASPT investment account and can be drawn on by the Council to help pay for any of the wide range of initiatives that your Society engages in to promote plant systematics. A healthy General Fund helps to insulate ASPT from the volatile journal subscription revenue stream and other unanticipated financial challenges that professional societies face today. ASPT Endowment Fund The ASPT Endowment Fund is a permanently restricted fund that generates income that is used to support special Society initiatives, such as travel to meetings, workshops, and publications. Your generous contribution to the ASPT Endowment Fund benefits ASPT members and the plant systematics community by increasing the size of the endowment, which in turn increases the earnings that we can spend in support of Society initiatives. Because the payout percentage for endowment funds is 5%, we prefer that gifts are at least $1,000. If you are interested in giving to either of these funds please contact the ASPT President, Jeff Doyle jjd5@cornell.edu to discuss your generous gift. All contributions are tax-deductible.

CONSERVATION METHODS FOR

Terrestrial Orchids Nigel D. Swarts, Ph.D., and Kingsley W. Dixon, Ph.D. “This authoritative and magnificent book is the work of many years of two wellrespected scientists in the field who clearly share a life-time passion for terrestrial orchids. It describes breakthrough orchid research that now make it possible to propagate even the most recalcitrant of species.” —Sir David Attenborough, From the Foreword

Orchids are unmatched in their floristic diversity, wide range of growth habitats, and, most importantly, their unique and highly adapted biology and ecology. With terrestrial orchids now among the worlds most threatened plants, the need for conservation is paramount. Conservation Methods for Terrestrial Orchids equips orchid biologists, botanists, conservationists, students, and hobbyists with the necessary methodologies to facilitate the conservation of this endangered group of orchids.
