Registration is now open for the 7th EMAPi conference, to be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, November 3-8. Actually, the full title of this event is quite a mouthful: "Invasive Plants in Natural and Managed Systems: Linking Science and Management and International Conference on the Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions." Register by September 15th to get the early-bird discount ($190). Students can get their registration fee refunded by volunteering their time, details are here. The preliminary program looks very interesting (though is anyone taking bets on whether or not Gale Norton will show up?).
