Scottish Botanists' Conference 2021

An amazing 380 people registered for the online Scottish Botanists' Conference on the 6th November, with 240 viewers for the most popular talks. We had a great day of truly inspirational talks. Who knew that Seagrass meadows around our shores were so important for carbon sequestration? And that while some arctic-alpines are faring really well after 40 years of monitoring on Ben Lawers, others are not? There was a fascinating talk on Beinn Eighe, currently celebrating its 70th anniversary, and a beautifully illustrated talk on searching for rare arctic-alpines in West Affric. All this was followed by two great workshops - one on Larch ID and another on Polypody ID.
