Dear Colleagues,
The 8th PLoSWA Plant Life of SW Asia will be hosted by the

Centre for Middle Eastern Plants at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

from 1-5 July 2013.
Since its’ inception in 1970, this conference has brought together a

wide range of people with an interest in the plants of SW Asia. We would

like to encourage a wide range of presentations including in areas not

traditionally featured: a broad scope of subjects, with sessions focusing

on floras, systematics (including and approaches),

various conservation topics including protected areas and policies as well

as the role of botanic gardens, landscaping and plants in culture will

be included. It is also a chance to establish and strengthen partnerships

and collaborations.
For conference details, please visit the conference website: which will be updated regularly as

abstracts are submitted.
Registration is now open, and early bird discounted registration has been

extended until the end of 2012. We welcome the submission of abstracts

in any of the advertised sessions, and also proposals for workshops.
If you require any information about PLoSWA8, please email:
Best wishes,

Dr Alan Forrest
